Managed another run this morning in my "Orthotic'ed Bionic Running Shoes" and all without any leg trouble thank goodness.
I must say I'm agog at how my va va voom has massively reduced - in terms of fitness I mean. I went out with the thought "I'll do a full 5K this morning and get one in the bag"..........No such luck! By about 1.5K I was thinking "Ohhhh maaaaaan! I am sooooo tired!". Felt heavy and mentally draggy, so decided to adjust my route to make it a 3.5K loop. The other day I stopped for a walk break - but not this morning, so perhaps my fitness has got better by 0.000001% WHICH IS BETTER THAN NOWT!
By the time I got to the finishing line and all the press bulbs went off, fans started singing my name and beautiful creatures fainted at my greatness........sorry.....hang on. Did I just write that out loud? Damn it. What I meant to say was...
When I reached the little bridge that goes over the river Crane and dodged a massive dog tu** I stopped running and went into my warm down walk. I was bloomin' cream crackered at this stage and I was wondering when I'd feel like running the full 5K monty once again?
I am so in awe of others on here that run waaaaay beyond the 5K goal and can never see myself managing beyond that distance. Not that I crave to you understand, but I'd love to get fitter and be able to not be so heavy legged.....NOW!!! "
"Be patient Dan" I told myself.
Anyway, got home sweating like a farm animal and red faced. Decided to leave the kittens alone this morning and not bore them with my exploits - for today is NEUTER day for them. Oscar is losing his generously sized kitty globes and Tallulah is waving goodbye to ever being a mummy cat. I'll see them later and see if they're interested in hearing about my run.
I can hear them now -
Oscar "Er, Dad. I left this house a kitten and came back a eunuch! P**s off!
Tallulah "Don't even LOOK at me you swine!"
I'm sure they'll get over it.......
