You see some interesting things when you’re out and about, although when you’re running you can’t really stop for a better look. Sometimes that’s for the best.
I don’t know why those men were stood outside that house in their underwear at night. I don’t know what they were laughing about. I don’t know what they said as I walked by. It’s probably for the best. Whatever the occasion was they seemed to be enjoying it so good for them!
That was during my first cool down walk but during my second circuit around that part I saw something more interesting. At first I thought it was a dog but when t looked up at me I realised it was a fox. In my experience, when a fox sees a person, it runs. I know this but it still didn’t stop me thinking, just for a split second, what if today is the day the foxes stop being scared and rise up against their human oppressors? It could happen! It didn’t. The fox ran away. Not today, nature!
So today was three blocks of five minutes, which to be honest is just perfect at this point. Individually those are nice and manageable and they add up to a nice tidy 15 minute run to be proud of. It’s just the right amount to get the heart pumping and take some effort but not so much that I struggle. I’m really looking forward to doing a whole week of OH MY GOD I JUST SAW WHAT THE REST OF THE WEEK IS LIKE.
Well, ok then. Challenge accepted.
We have visitors this weekend. They’re going to be greeted by a very sweaty Edam rolling up to them on Friday evening.
Ok that’s then, this is now. It was a good run and I feel great, as I do another routine sweaty shop around Tesco where I can show off my glowing, shiny forehead. Here I am, ladies. Maybe don’t get too close.
Thanks to a an overtired boy refusing to brush his teeth it had to be a night run again but I decided to stay close to home this time so I did some circuits around the footpath around the houses. I did alter my route occasionally if I was in danger of getting too close to judgemental young people walking in the same direction I wanted to run in, just to make it especially awkward and drawn out when I try to overtake. I mean, they looked judgemental when I was judging them but I guess I’ll never know.
It wasn’t quite an easy run but it wasn’t far off. It was manageable which was why I liked it so much but now Jo Whiley expects me to push myself on Wednesday? COME ON.
Nah, I am looking forward to it. I want to see what I can do and if I can’t do it I want to keep doing it until I can, so I’m with you all the way, Jo.
There’s not really much to say about it. I came, I ran, I sweated and isn’t that what it’s all about? I will cautiously look forward to the week ahead.
