The last 2 weeks back on the wagon and off the honeymoon couch have gone really well. I completed week 5, started week 6 and then for my last run of the week threw the plan out of the window and did 5k (anyone new reading this, it is totally not recommended! I've been running over a year and I was using the programme to get my butt back in gear!) The 5k run was definitely one to remember, I'd overdressed for the weather (how nice was yesterday!) I found it harder than before I slacked off (to be expected as I gain my lost fitness back), I ran past 2 friendly workmen digging up the road (got a hello) and if I find the kid who yelled 'you're fat......ha ha ha' out of a car window I'd run after his ass until he couldn't run no more and I was still going and teach him a lesson (little s**t). I'm overweight not fat and I'm a hell of a lot fitter than most! It's the first time I've been heckled and by a minor at that! I'd love to have given him and his parents a talking to, that's no way to raise a kid!
On the non running saga, the boiler is still behaving after it's new pump was installed, I had to order a new shower in the end which is also installed and is amazing! (Loving it!) and I'm still keeping my fingers crossed on the black gunge fight I've been having with the washing machine. Life's not been dull (or cheap!) that's for sure (no new shoes for me for a while, not that I need another running pair, I've just loved seeing all the photos recently!)
This weeks plan and going forward? I'm going to start an 8 week plan I found in Women's running just before Christmas, it has squats mid run and everything!
Happy running folks!
