I spent 11 hours in A&E/hospital with my dad yesterday as he sometimes struggles to swallow food, so my diet consisted of the above with a cup of Costa hot chocolate. Poor running food and my water consumption was only 2 glasses all day. I wasn't looking forward to running today at all, however I dragged myself out and did it. Received a phone call half way through to say my dad was being discharged. God only knows what the nurse thought I was up to as I was running at the time and obviously I wasn't stopping for no one! Glad it's done. Onwards and upwards ONLY 4 more to go!! x
W8R2 Fuelled by Cadbury Chocolate and a packet... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
That’s real motivation!! Well done!
Hope your Dad’s ok
Great job... and good to see dad discharged.
Not the best prep... but job done. As for the nutrition, I have a friend who fuels marathons on food that’s “bad for us” and he’s so healthy! No food is bad, and sometimes we need a bit of what we fancy. Obviously your choices were very limited anyway.
Enjoy closing this week out... and then it’s time for the victory lap.
Unstoppable! Well done! Hope your dad is ok x
Amazing. Well done you
That's awesome, great spirit! All the best to your dad!
Wow, that's amazing that you made it out despite the deviations to the plan and the less than ideal fuel... or was it? Hope your Dad is back to feeling himself.
Oh gosh... breathless answering the phone eh? Haha... I'm sure they've seen it all at A&E so no possible imagined scenario could surprise them!
Fab post-on many different levels.
Well done for getting it done, and carrying on running when they called!!! Glad to hear your dad is discharged-lovely smiley pic of you both 😃
Am I the only one jealous of the Costa and chocolate?!?! 😆
As you said only 4 to go!!!! It’s so near...
Not what you're looking for?

Well I must say I wasn't looking forward to this run at all. I thought to myself halfway through...
children, out of work clothes, running gear on, garmin on, tunes on and run.
5 miles in 53 minutes...
but goddammit I had just run 10k when I struggled to run for 60 seconds only six months ago :)...
completed every run however tired I felt..
Today I was only able to run for 15 minutes...I wasn't...
can only do me good. Ran this morning like death warmed up, but I did it. As Laura says, a bad run...
