Well, it's been a heck of a week. Teen Rainbow's anxiety took over badly early in the week, which put a spanner in the planned works and left us (well, me and Mr Rainbow anyway) utterly exhausted. With one thing (that) and another (it's Holy Week, so various church stuff and getting things sorted that Mr R has needed for the services he's involved with, being a priestly type), I just have not managed to summon up the energy to go for a run.
I was feeling better yesterday afternoon, so was going to go then - until the Teens had a Falling Out mid-day. And leaving them like that is a bad plan at the moment. So run postponed. Again.
Today, though, I was motivated. All I had to do was mow the lawn. Oh, and go shopping for 25 Easter eggs for Mr R to give to assorted folks tomorrow. And run. Well, having decided that the perfect time would be while the Teens watched Dr Who, I realised that was a bit soon after tea. Then Mr R said best to wait until he'd gone back to work. Then the Teens took forever going to bed. But eventually, two hours later than planned, and an hour after I got hanged and ready, I put on my trainers and headed out.
After about 3 mins of running, my left knee twinged. 🙁 I thought about just going home, but decided to walk a minute or two then try a gentle jog again. That seemed to work, so for the rest of the 30 mins I ran 3 or 4 mins, then walked a little. The last two run segments I managed to get up to 5 and 6 mins (yay me! 😊) and I managed to include a run up my nemesis incline in there too!
So although it wasn't a perfect run, I feel so much better for having gone and tried it. The knee wasn't happy in the cool down walk either, so I'll leave the next run til my normal Tuesday slot instead of trying to fit it in on Monday. But I'm happy. 😊
