So today was my allotted W3R3 - gorgeous weather as you will all know, the length and breadth of the UK. Set off to *my* park (you know, I consider it solely mine) to the wee route that I have now done 3 times, with slight variations to stay out of sight. Imagine my horror when there were security guards at *my* entrance, saying I couldn't go in; that part of my park was closed. It's being used for a major national event so hoarding/fencing is going up and I saw loads of workmen doing this.
I got back in the car and drove off back homewards, to sit in the garden. It was too hot to face the unairconditioned gym for the run. Within 2 seconds I found myself saying to myself sternly - what are you doing!! Get back! There is ALWAYS another way round!
I don't know this park very well but its huge. I drove to another entrance/parking area and set off in the soaring heat. A new route! The Unknown! There are loads of trees to give shade so I found it ....just wonderful. I will admit that I do choose a wandering route that keeps to the flat for the running sections, hope this is OK.
I felt this run was easier than W3R2 (late morning) and again, felt elated. That feeling of 'I can do this', 'I didn't give in', 'I found it slightly easier' - these feelings are truly causing me to feel joyful.
In other (related) news, my pants nearly fell down. I feel this programme, plus my healthier eating, is really working.
Week 4, let's be having you!!
