A week off and not looking forward to this morning

Last Sunday I ran 5k and cut 13 seconds of my last time - I have done it so few times I hesitate to call it a personal best yet, it is just the time I did it in last. I managed to get a couple of sore toes and decided not to run on Tuesday but to take an extra rest day Then we suddenly had to travel 300 miles to look at a house that came up for sale and that took up Wednesday and Thursday. Friday and Saturday I procrastinated some more and today is our 40th wedding anniversary but Mr Rosebery is still asleep and I am definitely going to go out today. Probably. Almost certainly. In a minute. Or two. Or maybe after another cup of tea. Anyway, I am posting here in order to make myself go out. I know I will enjoy it, at least when it's over!

  • Awww any time knocked off is a PB. You will keep knocking off time. Enjoy your run ;-)

  • 13 secs is a great reduction. I know real life can get in the way of running, just go out and tell yourself you can stop after 20 mins (or whatever) if you aren't enjoying it. I bet you'll fly round! Sometimes a little break is good...Happy anniversary xxx

  • You sound just like me today, just waiting for my breakfast to go down and procrastinating is definitely the right word! :) report back after??!!

    PS Happy anniversary! :)

  • Reporting back. I covered 4.71k without the warm-up/down but very slowly with quite a lot of walking because my children kept texting me and posting things on Facebook and I kept looking at the phone. That's my excuse, it also happens to be true, and now I can go out for our anniversary lunch without feeling too guilty. How did you do aliboo?

  • Any time reduction is a win win ! Well done , you will get back out there so let us know how it went :)

    Good luck !!

  • I never switch my phone on when I run. You can chat after your run. Save your breath for your running! No you can't have another cuppa!

    I'm kicking butt this morning. LOL

    I bet you were glad you headed out. Enjoy your lunch and very well done on your PB. Great stuff!!!!!

  • Lunch was lovely. Running was not brilliant but at least it was moving my mass through the distance and that is all to the good. Thanks everyone.
