It's been a difficult week emotionally, some nasty real life stuff happened, which made me feel pretty rubbish, and if I'm honest, angry. A bit like Sadie-runs recently I went out for a run last Sunday in a stinking mood, feeling really *cheesed off (*insert suitable expletive). I gave up after about 20 minutes of stopping and starting, because, I just couldn't be bothered. I couldn't bear to post about that as it all sounded so negative.
Fast forward to today. The sun was shining (ish), it wasn't too cold, and the canal towpath wasn't *too* wet, so off I went, in the opposite direction from usual. I planned to do 25-30 minutes, but at 15 minutes I realised I'd forgotten to turn round, so to cut a long story short, I ran for a few more minutes until I'd done 2.5k, then headed back. The advantage to doing this on a out-and-back route is that you have to do the second half!!
So, not the greatest speed wise, just over 5k in just over 38 minutes, but I feel great for doing another 5k, so I'll take that
Have a great day every one, happy Easter running!
