Here goes: week 9

Here goes: week 9

I set my alarm for 6am to get up bright and early ready for the run. Disaster. My bunnies (who live outside but their "hutch" is attached to the house) were making a right racket from about 4am onwards... managed to fall back to sleep eventually and then the alarm went off - aargh! I just dinged it off and went back to sleep until 6.45am. I work from home and supposed to start at 8am on Tuesdays.. Told myself there is no way I can go running this morning - felt dreadful. Brian was on his way to work and he told me I will feel fine once out there - go for it! Had a wash, cleaned teeth, got my gear on and I was ready to go. I am SO glad I did. It was one of the nicest runs I had. I took it very steady to begin with as my last two runs I had horrendous stitch. So it went at a much slower pace, no stitch - all felt good. I even did the last five minutes on the big hill back home.. not a problem. I concentrated on breathing, slowed down and hope I've cracked it. Next run is on Thursday then my final run is going to be park run - may as well go for it eh? :-D

Today's stats moving time 40.02 (including the 5 min walks obviously), 3.3 miles covered, 11:55/mi.

  • Well done, your post is really inspiring!

  • Thank you - next time I have that "oh I can't be bothered" feeling, I am just going to go - no matter what, always feel better after a run :-)

  • Well done for going out. Sounds like a lovely run 😊

  • Nice run and nice hutch. You have very spoiled bunnies. I hope they appreciate their lovely home 😀

  • Yes they do ;-)

  • Isn't that 'always the way' and not just with running. The less you feel like doing something, the better it turns out to be when you do! Final run Park run? Absolutely. If you've got it, flaunt it :) Did Brian say 'told you so' ? ;)

  • Great post, good to hear you got out there, sometimes it just feels blah and it ends up hurrah! And you did it today. 👯👯👯👯

    Love the bunny palace!

  • Naughty bunnies! Well done, though :)

  • Well done! Sometimes the best runs are the days we don't feel like running. Keep going, you're so nearly there!!

  • That's a hotel not a hutch! Sounds like you have W9 all sown up, good luck for the last 2 runs. Look forward to hear about your graduation run.

  • Wow , that's not just a hutch its a penthouse suite , Lucky bunnies ! :-)

    Well this is it , Drum roll ........ Graduation Week Mark 2 !

    Good Luck and Well done you for taking up the programme again .

    You can do this ! :-) xxx

  • Sounds like a great run - clever Brian to encourage you to do it,

    Pesky rabbits - didn't know they are noisy,

  • They're not really only when something is bothering them and then they stomp their back feet as a warning. So I had to get up, see what the fuss was about.. they were just winding me up I think. But just have to be sure no foxes lurking about :-)
