I write this post with a heavy heart as this was by far the hardest run so far in the program for me 😢
Yesterday I dropped off my daughter at university 120 miles away from me in Stoke-on-Trent. I had thought hard about last weeks running schedule, taking 2 rest days between runs, so that I would be ready for this weekend.
Yesterday went by in a blur of emotions and plenty of tears, enough to sink the Titanic, and when I arrived home yesterday all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and sleep.
I still felt like that this morning but after dropping my other daughter off at work, I donned the running gear and got out there and boy was I glad I did!!
WK6R1 was my saving grace, it wasn't as easy going as Thursday's WK5R3 but it was just what I needed to do.
Me. Outside. Fresh air. Running. Not thinking. Just running. Breathing. Running. Just running. Me. Myself and I.
And that is all I needed. I always knew that this day would come and that she would go off to uni but I never thought for one moment that the thing to help me through it would be running!!
Thank you to everyone who has replied to my previous posts. It is very much appreciated, more than you will ever know ❤️❤️
