Soooo, that didn't go quite to plan 🙁. Should have gone out yesterday but had a hectic evening as dog had to go to vets, needed to pick daughter up from work, then appt at blood donors.
Set off with good intentions tonight. Seriously struggled. Not sure if it was the heat, not drinking enough through the day, tiredness or blood donation, or quite probably just a combination of all the above, but whatever it was just didn't get in the zone at all. Half way through second 10 mins I got a stitch (1st ever), got lightheaded & thought I was going to be sick. Slowed it right down & kept plodding (determined it wasn't going to be the run that beat me). Hubby went streaking off leaving me in the dust, but I DID it! I think next time I donate, I'll leave a couple rest days before I run - not sure if my recent weight loss also contributed to feeling so lousy, but there's 23lb less of me, so maybe I noticed the loss of a pint a bit more than normal. Anyway, feeling better now (had couple pints water & some food), so will put this out of my mind & look forward to run 3 on Monday. Enjoy your weekend everyone ☺
