game of thrones saved the day

It was my first day at my new job today, and after missing my run when I moved house I was pretty sure I was going to miss my run today too. It had got to about 19.30 and I was dead set on postponing running until tomorrow.

Then my OH got home and we sat down to watch game of thrones on catch up, but it was being so slow!! (I think a lot of people were probably doing the same, too impatient to wait until 9pm), so there was only one thing to do whilst we let it buffer, get our running shoes on!!!

I completed W4R2 today and at the end I turned round and said to OH I am so proud of myself, I'm such a quitter in everything in life I really can't believe I'm still going, but I am determined to see this through to the end!!!

  • Well done! I will be watching GOT straight after the footy! Can't wait! No spoilers please🙂

  • Well done for doing it! Great that you feel so good about it too - it's a good reward for getting out there.

    I totally understand as I seem to go through 'phases' with things (especially things I find hard and don't come easily) before dropping them or forgetting about them after a little while. I've kept up the running for nearly 9 weeks now so hopefully this one is here to stay!!

    Hope you enjoyed GOT too. It'll be a good finale next week!!

  • If there was only 'Game of thrones' on, I would be straight out for a run to get away from it.

  • :)

  • I know what you mean, I don't really like gratuitous, over the top violence (walking dead? no thanks) but I am hooked on GOT. I did read the books first though...

  • Oh, I am a total GOT addict! No apologies - absolutely essential viewing here! 🙂

  • Carry on... well done :)

  • So can you no longer say "I'm such a quitter in everything in life" as that just isn't true anymore :-).

  • It was a good GOT last night, the finale is coming far too quickly!!!

  • That was an amazing GoTs last night! One worth waiting for.
