In case you all thought I had immigrated to the West Indies never to be seen again well (unfortunately that didn't happen although I can highly recommend a holiday in Tobago) that is not the case. I have been silently reading and enjoying everyone's posts and I have tried to encourage a few newbies along the way. The reason I haven't posted is because I have lost my mojo and have only run 5 times since Christmas! I now realise that I am a fair weather runner as I need to run early in the morning and with daylight. So that problem solved I am beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel with the longer evenings and sunnier days. I started this programme on1st April last year, no joke!, so that seems to be my optimum time, and I did run right up until the beginning of October. If I was a racehorse they would have called me a stayer and a champion. ( not really but as that's my line of work thought I would throw it in).
For any of you still reading my ramblings it is my birthday tomorrow and since early January I had promised myself new runners if I started my 10k programme and had got back to the part where you run 5k. Well I have started but I am still on run/walk intervals of only 5 run / 3 walk. So I am going to deny myself the shopping trip to sweatshop tomorrow until I feel truly deserve new runners and with that goal in my head hopefully it shouldn't be too long.
Thanks to everyone for all the amazing posts, I don't know how you fit it all in but it keeps me entertained, upbeat and inspired.
By the way I can now reveal that people near me is miles off.........I mean way way off!!
Love you all ( well doesn't everyone get emotional the night before their birthday, and I will have you know not a drop of alcohol has passed these lips.....).
