Well done all for getting out in this wind and completing your runs this weekend, everyone is doing just marvellously - love it!
A little apprehensive for my lunchtime run today, after a heavy Saturday of friends staying, prosecco drinking, pizza eating and late night chatting... Not amazingly sensible of me, but such is life!
As all have experienced and conquered... That WIND was out to challenge me too for this last W7 run today, but actually I felt it was working in my favour somehow this time ... waking me right up, whipping away sluggish feelings of over-indulgence, reminding me to keep strong, push hard and look lively!
I was thrilled to find myself much, much further up the canal path at Lauras halfway point today - even running into the wind - past Shrek's swamp (now drying up a little in the sunshine) and onwards to a lock and pretty bridge I'd not reached before. Distracted by the new scene, my feathered friends and the sunshine glinting on the water, the gremlins were entirely absent as I headed into the latter part of the run, wind propelling me forwards, increasing my snail pace and willing me on.
Of course, not easy in those final minutes, breathing deeper to get through but managing to finish a little quicker, but less than stylish! A lovely walk then, enjoying the wind cooling my face, to home and high fives from my small people playing in our cul-de-sac on their scooters and enjoying the bright, dry afternoon.
Taking two rest days now I think before tackling W8, will work out better with next week's work schedule that way, but planning walks and perhaps a little bike ride to keep me going. x
