That'll Teach Me!

I left work ten minutes before I should have, just so that I could do my W9R2 around the playing fields close to where I live, as it has been far too dark by the time I've got home. Off I went, full of determination, but oh boy, was that a tough one, I completed the run, but could've quite easily fallen into a heap when I finished. I just couldn't understand why, having had so many good runs, and then it dawned on me.....I stupidly hadn't eaten much all day! Any new runners out there please take note, you must eat during the day, not just a yogurt for breakfast and then a banana at lunchtime!!! That'll teach me. I really, really hope that I can run this Friday to make a special Good Friday for when I graduate ๐Ÿ˜„

  • Well done Jax for completing the run, you are sooo near the finishing line now !

    Its all a learning curve I think this running lark. You quickly learn what works for you and what doesnt.ย 

    Good Luck for Friday, you can do this ! :-) xxx

  • Thank you, wise poppypug with wise words. I'll make sure that I'll eat ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • What a great day to graduate! You'll smash it and we'll be rooting for you!

  • Think this is a mistake a lot of us make at least once. As Pops says, it's all part of the learning curve :)

  • A very silly stupid mistake and I won't be doing that again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Well done and good luck with your graduation run. Mine is this weekend too - does that mean we deserve an Easter egg (or extra one!).
