No, not like that! DD2 had cooking at school today, so was sorting out tea tonight when I got in from work (lasagne, YUM!) - and as I was about to raid the kitchen for a bag of crisps, I suddenly realised that I had time to go for a run. So I abandoned the idea of snacks, and headed out.
Week 5, run 2 (for a change!), nice walk to start off, good first run - and I managed to keep going to the end of it, even though it was up the very slight incline which has defeated me in the past. Then, just as I started walking, my phone died.
I was tempted for a moment to give up and go home, then thought that no, I could easily do the rest of this. The walk had started almost back by the end of my road, so I knew where five minutes would get me, and as I know I have 30 breaths per minute running, I could keep count of eight minutes for the second run, too!
So I did. And added an extra count of 30 breaths on the end, just to make sure I hadn't inadvertently cut it short. So 8+9 mins running, or thereabouts.
Tonight, I feel good. And I still haven't had that bag of crisps.
