Week 6 Run 3 completed today! Loved it. Had a rough nights sleep and was sure I was going to get out there and run out of steam, but knuckled down, mentally took it in 5 minute chunks and cleverly (or not) tucked 2 x banana lollies (sweeties for you UK peeps??) into my back pocket in case I felt like I needed a hit of glucose. My plan was to eat one at the halfway point and then another at the end. I got so into the run I forgot about the banana stash and kept on going.
By the time the run ended, I remembered about my stash and reached around and found two squishy bananas and decided I'd earned them and scoffed them down. Now I can't say decisively whether it was a sugar high or post run high but by the time I got back to the car, I was pumped! Maybe a little from column A and a little from column B!
Friday sees me start Week 7 and I'm quietly confident that each time I step out, I'm going to get faster, and stronger and increase my distance to get closer to that 5KM mark.
So thanks super magic banana lollies, you were my friend today!
