So I bought myself a cinnamon bun as an end of run incentive today. I recognised the young girl behind the counter as someone I often pass, either striding out on my warm up walk or teetering back red faced at the end. I introduced myself as the mad woman in running gear , as I now realize we must be near neighbours. Anyway the sweet young thing said she thinks how fit I must be, that she has all the gear but just looks at it. I must say that little exchange put a spring in my step for the final run this week.
Talking of ruts.... I have made my own personal one on my usual run route, familiar, predictable and measurable (that is , I know when I’m half way . So the question is- for week eight do I do as jo says and try a change of route? Get out of my rut and make another? Perhaps I should just turn right instead of left and see where the warm up walk takes me
What do others do?
