I know that WK7R1 was exactly the same as WK6R3 but why did it feel so much harder?! I know that I can run it because I've done it already but boy, did it feel rough this morning. I guess some runs are like that!!
The first 5 minutes I always find comfortable and today was no exception but for some unknown reason today the running gremlins appeared at the 5 min mark and they didn't bugger off till Mr Smooth told me I had been running for 12.5 mins!! I've never had these little creatures appear before and quite frankly they can disappear again!!
Can't put my finger on it but after the gremlin incident I thought to myself that there is no way that I am giving in to them so I ran. I continued to run. Singing in my hard. Breathing steadily. Good pace.
Mr Smooth popped up again to tell me that I only had 5 mins to go and this is where I started to talk to myself. Out loud. In the park. With the morning dog walkers and joggers.
I replied to his "You only have 5 mins left" with "I am a single mother who has raised 4 children, all of which have turned into hardworking young ladies. If I can do that then I can bloody well run for 5 more mins!!"" Suffice to say the dog walkers nodded their acknowledgment with a smirk on their faces and the joggers just smiled, I'm sure they'd all said things like that in their running journey!!
Anyway, WK7R1 has been bagged and I've now started to map just the running part of my journey, although I went a little over today at the end as I was still laughing about the joggers and dog walkers and their faces!!
Oh and I've signed up for my local Parkrun 😬🏃🏻♀️
Enjoy your Sunday, whatever you're up to and lets hope that we can all keep on running!! 😊😊😊
