"Not sure if I'll manage to do a run, maybe if I get my presentation prepared in time" as I said to my boss as he also expressed a wish to go for a run, though he turned his nose up at the little park opposite our hotel, suggesting running laps of it was beneath him (he runs 10K+ regularly at lunchtimes...). I did laugh when the next day he said he'd been on the treadmill instead - no idea how that's better!
I did not get my presentation done in time and then on Thursday evening (after the presentation) we went Out For Some Beer (when in Belgium...). I even drunk a beer. I don't drink beer. I hardly slept all week and did not set an alarm for this morning.
So it was to my utter surprise that I found myself in leggings, a sports bra, top, socks and running shoes wondering how long I could run before I ought to get to breakfast and the last morning of the conference.
GingerBohemian , I did it! I went for a run in Antwerp! It was lovely. The sun hadn't risen and it was raining but it was great. I didnt even take music (there are cyclists everywhere so probably sensible). I saw bunnies. The park was nice enough for me - the paths were quite winding and there was even a bridge across a lake. I ran for 23 min and then daftly ended up on the wrong side of the park and was a bit late getting back, but never mind. Mental soundtrack - Carpenters, We've only just begun...
My boss' incredulous face when I said i'd been out this morning was worth it, but I suspect he'd have been more pleased had I finished preparing my presentation more than 2 hours before it was given.
Onwards and upwards!
