I'm so chuffed right now. I'd planned to go for a run this morning, having slacked off recently for various reasons (blisters, dark evenings, etc.) I really wanted to just have "a good morning run" to get me back on track. I've just been going to parkrun every week recently, and while I like the atmosphere, it's not the most beautiful run ever!
So I got up with some effort at 7am. Went in bathroom, looked out window - FOGGIEST FOG EVER. Very demoralising and it really wasn't what I had been looking forward to. So, a few minutes later, I got back into bed and said to my partner "I'm not going. It's too foggy", thinking I would go out tonight instead (but not relishing that prospect either as it would be dark and I like running in light!). As the words came out of my mouth, I grumbled to myself, reconsidered and then jumped out of bed again. "No! Changed my mind! I'm going!"
And as I was running, it turned into the most beautiful, sunny morning. I take this as the universe telling me I made the right decision I did the Stamina podcast and I got into quite a roll in the end, it was just one of those runs that feels great! I started thinking "maybe I could do 10K one day" - ha!
My mind boggles at how many beautiful sunrises I have missed in the past, in bed pressing "Snooze" too many times, before I discovered running!
Not going to parkrun on Saturday so I am going to do another sole run at the weekend and I can't wait! Fingers crossed for more sunshine! I feel like I've got a bit of my mojo back today
PS. To any UKers - did anyone else hear Chris Evans and Vassos on Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Tuesday morning, waxing lyrical about running (they were auctioning off a running experience for Children In Need to listeners)? It brought a smile to my face.
