First run of week9

First run of week9

Did not have a good start but I made it!

Following husband's sighting of a "different" person walking the park at the back of my place, amongst the trees, carrying a big stick, husband strict instructions : wait for daylight. So had to kill time for an hour waiting ...waiting ...waiting.

Finally got ready to go and...... couldn't get the iPod to work. Thinking maybe I could go with just the watch and measure the time.... But nah, not knowledgeable enough... I need Laura support.

What to do? Think woman!..... Checked iPod : flat battery! Bummer. Ok, charge it and will go later. Don't like later. So plugged in the iPod and had breakfast instead. Then waited five minutes. Can't wait too long so decided to give it a go and if my breakfast is in the way, will just have to try next day. Checked the iPod and by then had enough power to get it going.

It was hard running But I did it. I ploddded along in 5 minutes increments.

The only negative was when dear Laura told me I still had 20 minutes to go. Did she had to say this? Really!

Anyway, here I am, feeling fantastic knowing I have done the 30minutes. Two more runs and I will be on top of the world.

Better finish recharging the iPod......
