I want to do my final c25k graduation run on Friday but I really wanted to run today, so I took myself out for a 20 minute spin. Not sure if I was meant to during the program, but nothing said I couldn't and I'm only one run from the end.
It was so nice to run without the constraint of doing it for a specific purpose other than the sheer enjoyment of running for its own sake. I found I didn't get the usual butterflies and procrastination because I wasn't expecting anything of myself.
It was tough though. Note to self: if you're going to eat five donuts then a pasta dish, even three hours isn't long enough to wait to run; and if Ming the Merciless, mini wrist dictator, says 72 hours recovery from the previous run, he means it (except I didn't believe him because it's never been that long before). So the run was hard and I felt like giving up twice. But now he's given me a recovery time of only 22 hours, so that's ok.
Am I the only woman to get stuck in her compression socks?
