So, I’m 20 minutes into my run thinking ‘this is harder work than my last one and, boy, I’m getting very sweaty, I hope I can last...I’m sure I can last... Jo will be here very shortly...’ And then: ‘ding dong’ my Bluetooth earphones disconnect themselves from my phone...Gaaaahh!! And not only did they disconnect but they paused the C25K app as well, so my timing was now all over the place because I didn’t catch on it had done it for a bit as I was too concerned about the lack of music! 😡 😡
Now running is one of the few times when I cannot multi-task. I tried, but it was too much to run and fiddle with my phone and my earphones and try to keep a good pace, and not to fall off the treadmill (mainly that last one actually 😂)!
Thankfully, I had my 5 x 5 timer on and my last five minutes alarm went off so I knew I was at 25 minutes. But I was really craving Jo to tell me how well I’d done and I didn’t want to stop without her say so, so I thought I’d try to push on through until Jo shouted through my phone at everyone in the gym that my run was over. I think I ran for about 27-28 minutes in all when I gave in and started the warm down but Jo didn’t say stop for another few minutes.
So, I know I’ve done this run but I feel a little cheated because Jo didn’t tell me to stop when I had to stop! Sounds silly really 😳 (I hope this makes sense and isn’t the rant of an oxygen starved brain!! 😂😂)
