I was wobbling on not running tonight, and doing it tomorrow, should have run yesterday but couldn’t, so not feeling it at all tonight.
Searched for ‘motivation’ and it brought up Jay66uk post from a month ago with lots of good advice given to him.
So I set off around a streets I haven’t run before to mix it up and so I could have a good nose in their front gardens 😜
Realised at about ~9 mins that I hadn’t automatically thought ‘6 times more to go’ when 5 mins was called (still got Sarah) - the running was ok, apart from a hot flush just to top the 24 degrees and make it feel like 34! 🍅
Got to the end and started the warm down walk and decided there was too far to walk home so ran until the end of the 5 mins warm down - which took me to 35mins (1 of which was walked) and 4km - still had about a km for a cool down walk. Felt really slow but it was in fact just my usual type of slow, not slower - sweltering by the end mind! 💦
First time I’ve run 4K - so just need keep pushing a bit to get to 5. That’s goal number 1 for now.
