After 3 days of inactivity caused by some sort of bug that is going around here, I woke up feeling a bit better, even if with a slight headache and a bit of a nausea... The intention was there... I put on my running gear, fed the chickens, had a coffee, discovered the ipod battery was dead, lost all motivation to get this run done, spent some time online while recharging, chased a chicken that was laying in the grass, managed to find the dog but still could not find any motivation... Forced myself out of the garden - the real reason being that the dog needs a walk or the chickens will be dead by the end of the day
And then... my running road starts about 1 km after I leave the house (steep downhill 10 min walk) -I put on my headphones, pressed play and even before the 5 minutes warm up were up I started on a slow run - which ended 31 minutes later, just before the steep uphill km back to the house started!!! I am really surprised I managed and so and happy I did it: - Headache and nausea gone, and most important week 8 done and with overtime.
I don't think I could have got to this stage without this incredibly supportive community!
