Well, after graduating on Saturday, tonight was my first 'just for the heck of it' run. I set out with 30 minutes in mind and 30 minutes I did but bloody hell ... I must have been dragging a pallet of bricks behind me! 4k took me 32 and a bit minutes when I did 5.2k in 35 and a bit on Saturday!!!
I put it down to a number of things ... it's Monday, it's cold, the hormones are visiting (!), I landed in a huge puddle for the first time since starting this and I'm devastated about David Bowie so all in all although I didn't crash and burn I learned that at least I got out there, I completed my goal in mind and although it may not have resulted in one of my better efforts, I'm still going again on Wednesday then Saturday. So the moral of the story is ... it's now a matter of incorporating running into my way of life and accepting that some days, your socks are just gonna be wet ... get over it!!! Happy running this week everyone
