I started out today again in normal state, sleep deprived, breastfeeding and tired. My hip has been tight today. But I had a good lunch and tried to drink lots all day. I thought lots about all the things that are on my mind before the run ( family illness, children, money, LIFE blah blah) and how I let all this go when I am running. Its really important to me that I get into a state of flow and love it that running gives me this, so off I went.
First 10 minutes I was slow but did lots of inclines and then got a stitch for the rest of the way ( dehydration again?). When I run my hip loosens up and doesn't hurt so this was a good awareness today. My dodgy bad hip and broken back like running!
When I hit 20 minutes I was further along my route than I had been on the 20 minute run so a bit of a shock as I was so slow today. Last 5 minutes was harder in body but lovely in mind and breathing and I picked up the pace a bit. Was lovely to be told I'm a runner. I feel a real sense of calm after the runs which is so useful as I normally have a toddler crawling over me when I am doing my stretches. I'm going to have a bath later and eat some nice fruit and nut. I love looking this beetroot XX
