I sort of lost my running mojo with the advent of the dark mornings. This is really strange because last winter i revelled in running in the dark before I went to work. This winter it seems harder to get out of bed, and today was no exception. So I took my kit to work and told myself I would run lunchtime.
Well I ran, but not very well. I have been re-doing the programme, struggling, and today was W9R1. I think I walked as much as I ran. It didn't help that as soon as I finished the warm up my route took me up a hill - just over half a kilometre rising by 9%. Not a good idea. I don't like hills of any sort.
Anyway after the hill I slowed down to a walk, and then ran, and then walked and then ran. Lost count of the walks. But then my splits were better than W8R3.
I am determined that Wednesday's run will be before I go to work, and without walks.
The reason I am posting this is to commit myself. I keep making promises to get out of bed but never manage it!
