I missed running last night as I had a meeting at school so I was looking forward to getting out this evening.
When I got home to change, I sat on the bed for a second and looked at the posts on here. Found myself thinking I would give tonight a miss (where had that come from?). Finally put running posts away and got onto the business of running. As I started a gremlin sat on my shoulder and started whispering negative thoughts in my ear. It took massive effort to shut out the grumbling voice and keep going. About half way through the music took over in my ear (not Laura's). I found myself pushing onwards with a slow rhythm and suddenly got to the 5 minutes walking place. I had run for 35 minutes!
That showed the gremlin. It really is as much mental as physical isn't it.
