Love a bit of Samuel Beckett. I actually went out with the quote in the picture in my head but the title was a better description of my run.....
I was quietly determined today to do a 30 minute run and decided to go along my old route without the added detours but I also thought if I don't do the 30 minutes - relax about it - just go for a run 😀
Absolutely beautiful autumn morning, sunny but not too warm with a lovely breeze.
Started real slow, had achey calves but the views were fabulous and I concentrated on those today holding my head up and taking it all in.
Pumped those arms and did my breathing correctly and kept going.
Got to about 15- 20 minutes and thought I can't go on. This is where I keep stopping at the moment - my danger zone and I know myself well enough to know that if I don't keep achieving eventually I will give up.........
So, I visualised myself getting to 30 minutes and how I would feel by getting there and so I pushed on and got there - 30 minutes running in the bag 🎉
Never easy for me this running lark 🙄
Today is a good day - this old tortoise feels good 🐢
p.s apologies for the use of the F word - it is a positive slant 😂
