The Voice in my Head was busy this morning, telling me I didn't need to go out, it was too wet, best stay in or do a bit of shopping instead...maybe get some nice new things for when the sun eventually appears and stays for longer than 24 hours. Well, that did sound appealing but when the rain went off and I was still standing between two piles of clothes - going out clothes or running clothes - I gagged the Voice in my Head, pulled on my running things and off I went...
Unfortunately the Voice came with me (and had somehow taken the gag off). I tried to ignore it but it's persistent: 'oh I think you need the loo, go back...I think you've got the loose leggings on, you'll need to go back...not sure this is the best way...only 10 minutes? Feels longer, maybe sit down - or just walk, that would count' but eventually it stopped and halfway into it I was in a groove and when Laura said slow down I ran on a bit, just a minute or two. I hadn't done the whole 5 minute warm up as I'd started playing it in the house so I walked for a couple of minutes, ran for about 32. Total 35 minutes, 5.04km. Eight minute walk back... 5.74 km in total.
Ha! Take that Voice in my Head! I did it and am only one run away from my goal... (Sorry, bit delirious, going to have a banana...)
PS If anyone has conquered that voice, let me know...does it ever go?
