So I had plans to get up very early and run then, but I’m not an early bird and in fact, despite a 5.30am alarm call, left the house late.
So plan B was to run at a real life athletics stadium while my son was a junior athletics. Yes, no problem, they said, so I plugged in and went!
It was deserted bar myself and a very powerful looking lady wiggly walker (the kids were indoors as it was a bit damp 🤔). She was in lane 1 and I was in lane 8, we waved a couple of times as she overtook me 😂
It felt good! I liked the flat surface and the spotlights, must be the showboater in me. I had lines instead of trees to aim for. It felt particularly good to be outside getting rosy-cheeked instead of sitting for an hour waiting for a rosy-cheeked child.
3 minutes didn’t feel that hard! I can’t believe I said that. I mean, I was glad to slow to a walk but I was smiling and enjoying the running, even in the home straight with a headwind.
Amazing. Thank you C25k! Yay!
