So after a quiet couple of weeks making the most of my baby boy being home from boarding school for Easter (ok, he's more of a stroppy teenager really but still..) I decided to get going again this week. Did my 2x 30 min runs on Tues and Thurs and ran a little over 4km each time. I decided to ditch Laura this morning (soz Laura!) and ran a pre-planned 5km route.
Took it really steady, not thinking about time, just the distance and getting 5km done - and I did it!!! In 39.14 so not great, but defo something to build on and that's even after drinking a shed load of wine last night.
Finally to the numpty tourist who made a snarky comment as I went past...I was just over the 4km mark and slowed myself further to get my breathing back under control (which I did) so bog off, I ran 5km this morning - what did you do?
Feeling great, thought I was looking great too until I got home and noticed my face was so red I could have been an oompa loompa - no make up required!
