Well Runners, what a run that was. Is there such a thing as the toxic 20? I was so tired this morning. I was tired before going to bed very late and didn’t sleep well at all. So, “no..no..no” was ringing in my ears this morning! But looking out and seeing what looked like breeze and the thought of the heat to come made me get a shifty on.
So up and out I go! I’m feeling heavy, but I know I just have to go slow. I tell myself, just have fun! I’m still feeling heavy, but I’m moving. Fun? Mmm...not yet. So, I then move to the emergency tool of “are you alive?” and yes I am, so I keep going. “Gosh this must be the toxic 10 others have spoken about”. Another first for me...but I know others get through it, so I know I can too. It’s not that I wanted to stop, it just felt a bit....well.....blah! 😕
So, MJ tells me I’ve reached half way. I kind of disregarded the first 5 minute shout out, it wasn’t helping at the time 😂! So, I say to myself, look it isn’t the fun run you wanted, but you can do it. Then I’m running and running and running and I start to think mmm..how much longer? I must be really tired today. Took my phone out...MJ went AWOL! I was being asked how I feel ahead of W8R1! 😱OMG! Noooooo! I kept running, had to start the app back on the right run, then fast forward to do another 5 minutes, I wasn’t cheating, I think I might have done closer to 40 mins but had no way of telling. Appropriately, Timberland and One Republic Song called “Apologise” came on the headphones! I did have to laugh about that and said “I should think so too MJ. 🤨 I still love ya!”
The best thing about that run was in the last 60 seconds, I found my mojo after all that disruption and I picked up the pace and I loved it!! That was a buzz! Hey..... even 60 seconds of running is better than no running at all!! Happy days! I did it! 😁
Early night for me I think! I’m gunning for a different experience on Sunday! But happy running all! ❤️
