Set out this morning to do the loop that landed me my Tuesday 10k, and like Tuesday I got stopped at the level crossing. Fortunately, it was only 1 train this time and the train was only a short distance away as I approached the crossing. I took this opportunity (as there were no cars waiting to cross) to adopt the 118 118 jogging on the spot training but have never felt so ridiculous . I quickly abandoned the plan, sheepishly looked around to see if I had been spotted only to see a fellow runner approach the crossing some 200m or so behind.
Not sure if he spotted me but the barriers lifted and I decided to up the pace to get away from him. This resulted in me tiring myself out a bit quicker than I would have liked but I managed to finish the loop and get away from my running comrade (I think he took a different route rather than me leaving him choking on my dust )
Anyhoo, runkeeper said 9.2k so decided to go a little further to complete the 10 as I was so close.
I proved to myself that Tuesday wasn't a fluke but wonder what my next step shoul be? I can't see myself training towards a HM as I don't think I can really dedicate the time to it that would be required and to be honest, I am not quite sure that I would be capable of the distance!!!
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Have a good weekend folks and enjoy, whatever your plans
