As some of you know I've been struggling to actually run for a whole 5K, Map My Run has been telling me I've been achieving 4.7K, so after careful pre-planning of my route, I set off this morning. Most of my route was along the park and cycle track by the river bank with a small section by the road at around 3K. I got to this part of the run, rounded the corner and the path is cordoned off due to yet more roadworks for the building of yet another bloody supermarket! No problem it's Sunday morning, the traffic is light, so I sped up and crossed the road only to trip and stub my toe on the curb, I stumbled and then in slow motion sprawled on the floor my full length, completely winding myself. The workman operating the temporary traffic lights picked me up (thank you), but I've never been so embarrassed in all my life. I began to run again, but the tears just kept coming. I finished the 5K, (43 minutes) does it count as I spent some time lying down? but I now have major pain in my stubbed big toe, (the one that was operated on for arthritis) and it hurts if I breathe too deeply as my left (size G) lady lump took most of the impact. My son laughed when I arrived home crying, which hurt even more and I couldn't even have a bath as the builders haven't quite finished. After a hot shower and some paracetamol, I'm sat writing this, still crying and contemplating the wine and the fags. Who knew I was such a girl.
