For one reason and another I didn't manage to get my run in last night so I was up and atem early this morning. Got all togged up, picked up my phone for tunes and runkeeper - dead as a dodo! Think my phone is playing up as it had plenty of battery yesterday. Got hubby hunting out his old phone so I could use that only to find my bluetooth headphones also dead so no need for the phone anyway! I am also without a watch at the moment as yet another battery has failed me! Ended up going out with nothing but my 5 year olds learn to tell the time watch!
The silent run wasn't so bad, I went along the canal again and the only noise was the honking geese and the odd hello from fellow runners and dog walkers. The quiet did allow the gremlins to creep in a bit though:
"you don't have to keep running for the full 30 minutes now you know, you've graduated you can do what you like"; " A little walk would be fine"; You're not well, you should turn back now".
I just kept an eye on the time to hit 15 minutes, then turned to head home to get to 30 minutes, not sure on distance but a guesstimate on map my run afterwards, I think I was just under 5k. It was fairly tough. Got the beginnings of a cold and tickly cough so struggled a bit in the cold morning air but I did it. Also did my warm up walk down the very big hill from my house so the cool down coming home was back up it. My goodness it's a killer, even walking! If I am ever able to run up that beast I will declare myself a fitness goddess!
