So, a sleepless night, up at 2.30am, off to work at 6.00am and a 6 hour round road trip later, I decide to go out, in the sun and 24 degrees heat 😂
The minute I started my run my calf muscles tensed up and hurt so I slowed down and keep going....met a walker intent on a chat with me and tried to explain I was on a running programme as I ran on the spot 😮 eventually escaped shouting "C25K" over my shoulder "look it up"!!
Down the hill and many many gremlins attacking me from all sides telling me I was tired, shouldn't be out there today, it was too hot, you are too fat and slow, look at your shadow, you should be ashamed, call that running? blah, blah, blah, bloody blah 😡
Ran past some people who looked at me disparageingly - you know - that look that says "Crikey, should she be doing that?" - so I waved and smiled at them 😂😮
Changed my music so had a sing song, wrote this post in my head, told myself this was my penultimate run, no stopping me now, and how cool would I look with a shiny new badge 🎓, thought about all the journeys I've followed on this forum, chatted with my gorgeous dog and.........just kept going
Up the big hill, down the other side and into my new area downhill under the trees.....feet felt better today but boy those calves - not achey - just tight - all advice welcome please as this is new to me....
Due to graduate ( Did I say graduate?? Oh my!! I think I just did 😃) Saturday but I might push that to Sunday to have 2 days rest instead of one
Today was my first run on my "my marathon" challenge during September and I did 2.2 miles. Only another 24 miles to go🏃 but 30 days to do that in so easy does it 😄 really don't want that IC at this stage!
I am tired and I ache but I am happy and I guess that's enough x
