I’m not going to lie, I was dreading it, but didn’t want to say so as it’s negative thinking, and I don’t want to put anybody off. “ Just flipping well get on with it” I thought, though maybe a bit stronger worded 😊
As you probably know I run around a country park on a lakeside path, and due to the day long downpour we had yesterday I guessed there may be some deep puddles, so I decided to wear my old shoes. Off I went, got through the first 10 minutes which are always the worst, and then hit the puddles. Well it was more like a flood! I kept going, at some points I was up to my ankles. I plodded and splashed onwards, but it got too where it was about a foot deep, so I turned round. By the time I’d reached puddle free path again I was at the last five minutes and it felt good squelching along in a nice rhythm.
So, I did it, and can’t help thinking that the puddle dodging and wet feet actually helped take my mind off the task ahead. Husband was home early today and was waiting to see how I got on - he runs, and I don’t think he can quite believe I’m doing this!
Loved it, and am now beginning to think I can go all the way, although I am really looking forward to the 2 rest day before W6.
Have a great day 👍😁
