The gremlins invaded my dreams last night! They were telling me that run 9 was going to be a failure and that I would give up halfway through!
I shouldn't be having anxiety dreams about running, this close to the end!
I got up at 7.10 and had a banana, waited an hour and then left the house, passing by my treadmill who looked on reproachfully and asked if I didn't love her anymore? I told her I would be back in her embrace when the bad weather comes again.
I went to my grassy playing field nearby, walked the warm up and then ran around the edges. There was a nice cool breeze.
The first ten minutes (or two songs of my playlist) went okay, no gremlins muttering.
I got to just over half way by my estimate and then found it a bit harder going than the last time so I went a bit more slowly.
I passed a few dog walkers, one of whom had a rottweiler which took a particular interest and came right up to me, so I jogged on the spot until the owner called it away as I didn't want it to chase me. I kept well away from it after that.
Then I ran until I estimated it was about 28 minutes and then "one more song" until the end. And then Gravity by Embrace came on and I had a good rhythm going to the beat, so I jogged for a few minutes more.
In your face gremlins!
A couple of rest days now, then runs on Sunday and hopefully Tuesday which should be graduation day! After that who knows....
