OK so i had to have a week out due to late night working and early morning working and I know it might seem like an excuse but last week I was shattered morn, noon and night !!!!! So I decided to write off last week and start again on Sunday morning which is my normal start day for the new running week. I started off and immediately I started thinking !" can't do this , I can't breathe !! " etc etc then Laura pipes up " you should be into a nice steady rhythm" and there I was settled into a steady running pattern!!!!!
But instead of taking my usual route I parked myself in the countryside and thought I would have a change of scenery, well what do you know ¬!¬!!!!! I came across these new metal style gates come stiles ?????? that you have to squeeze through and lift up catches etc.!!!! i got very cross at some points as they were really stiff and covered in nettles and I was definately about to drop at one point and there I was cursing and shouting at this thing and Laura was telling me that I had done really well and I was shouting at her that actually "NO" I was not doing well and I was not really getting on very well !!!! A couple of lone walkers in the beautiful Norfolk countryside gave me side ways glances as if to say " mad, mad mad" and walked on at a quicker pace !!! But I did manage to get through this metal contraption and continue on my way. When I arrived outside my door I thought good , another one down and ready to go and one of Miles-Yonders milkshakes (which i am quite addicted to now!!!) along with the crunchy peanut butter and rice cake scenario keeps me going all the way!!! That is my return home treat!!!
looking forward to run 2 of week 7 and beating myself up about not losing as much weight as I thought I would have by now??? I have lost almost 1 stone but i did secretly hope that I would maybe have lost more as I have been following my fitnes pal quite avidly over the past 7 weeks, still I suppose one thing at a time - I must stop being quite so impatient !!!! Good luck all
