Surprised myself! W8D1

Surprised myself! W8D1

I really wasn't looking forward to this one... 

I'd had a heavy weekend of drinking and excess, rather than running on Sunday, as planned, I put it off a day... then another...

Finally, last night I put my shoes on and wandered off to my local park. After the 5 minute warm up, I set off. I'd decided to take it easy and run at a slower pace than usual.

I had a Radio4 comedy on my headphones and I must've drifted off, I heard a few mile pointers (splits?) but didn't really pay much attention. I did, however, pay attention when I heard a voice tell me I'd run 3 miles in 27' 39"!

3 miles!  That's three MILES!!! 

Ha! Ha! I couldn't be happier! And am now really looking forward to the next run, fingers crossed I can drift off again...


There's a screen grab of the app I use up there ^
