was working this weekend and was planning to run this evening, was tired when I came home and in need of a cup of tea( must be an age thing, tea is vital for me to function) as I got in there was a power cut, so no tea😩 phone call to power company said they expected it too be on by 7.30...so off I went to the next village for chips for the family ...decided to run while they had their food and found my running tights and top were still wet in the washing machine from Friday...oops I'm not very well domesticated...nearly talked myself out of running but remembered I had bought a pair of above the knee triathlon shorts..after some dithering in front of the mirror with the gremlins telling me not to go out like that, and a sore head from tea withdrawal, I gave myself a kick and braved the outdoors in shorts... Chose a different route to my normal 5 k route and ran past my normal turning onto a disused railway to the next village, managed to run all the way there, through the village and back via the main road, had my phone volume on too low and heard my app muttering something but kept on until I got home,ran past a bit and then walked home for a cool down. Checked my phone and I actually ran 7 k! My longest run yet! Was so glad I went out when I so nearly abandoned the idea. Must have been the lucky shorts! P.S sorry to ramble....
