Back on track today, with W8R1. I've had a week off as I've not been well, so I ran at the gym to go a bit easy on myself. They've got some shiny new machines there, at first a bit disconcerting as the belt felt slippy underfoot on my warm-up walk - not something you want when running - but happily it was ok once I got going. The screen showed my journey through the Grand Canyon - heartily glad I wasn't actually running there, as those sandy, rocky, twisty pathways looked pretty treacherous! Mind you, I felt like I was there heat-wise - super sweaty and off-the-scale red-faced...hopefully attributable to being post-poorly!
Made it through the 28 minutes, and the Grand Canyon is certainly more attractive to look at than the old paint scuff on the wall! 😁
I made myself a healthy protein smoothie when I got home, although with blueberries rather than my usual mango as a little fruit sweetener, it was more reminiscent of something skimmed off the top of a pond than my normal pick-me-up. Once I got my head round it and told myself it tasted just as good as normal it was fine..... a mind-game, just like running! 😁🏃♀️😁🏃♀️
