The wind? Or the 'wall'?

The wind? Or the 'wall'?

That was a tough run this morning, pushing my little one in the jogger buggy against a gale force head-wind in parts. That aside, I think I may have experienced 'the wall' fairly early on but am not sure if it was that or just the extra effort needed to keep pushing forward? I really felt like just jacking it all in for today for a bit, like I just couldn't do it. My legs felt heavy like when I first started & my breathing was a struggle. I didn't stop though, I let my legs go on autopilot & just concentrated on my breathing & moving forward in a running style even if it may have been very slow. And then I was fine. Well, as fine as any previously very unfit person who's taken up running with a baby in tow in a windy nature park. Weirdly I then got cross because a tiny section of my route was flooded so I had to tip-toe through the water in a defiant 'I'm not going to stop running' dance whilst discovering that my lovely new breathable trainers do indeed let in water. That seemed to help because I was not going to let anything stop me!

I can't help but feel though that my running buddy is not taking this as seriously as me...

  • Beautiful!!!!

    Simply wonderful .. and well done you, ".....neither wind nor flood, nor... errr... wall, shall stop them in their appointed round... " ( Apologies to the US Postal service :)

    I had a small runner in training in her pram today...but it was my rest day, so we just walked for 6 miles :)

  • Aww thanks 😌 And well done on the walk!

  • Impressive stuff SunnyMummy😊

    Well done on braving the elements and a great run...

  • Thank you 😌

  • Wow, that is mighty impressive. I chickened out of running outside and went to the gym instead. And I don't have a pram to push. Respect.

  • Haha thank you. I think if had childcare today, I would possibly have gone for the treadmill too 😉
