The snooze gremlins got me this morning. 👿💤 so it had to me a lunchbreak run.
It was cold, damp and misty out and I really didn't feel like it - energy levels were really low and I almost didn't go. This is the first time I haven't been enthusiastic about going for a run since I restarted c25k.
I kitted up and started my dynamic warmup routine. Then my boss rang me. By the time I finished the call, completed my warmup and faffed around a bit more it was much later than I'd intended.
It's run 5 minutes, walk 3 minutes, run 5 minutes, walk 3 minutes, run 5 minutes today.
Oh my goodness!!! That second 5 minute run was so laboured and was actually slower than both my warmup and cooldown walk!!! 🥵
However, come the third and final run interval I felt better, and was almost easing into things by the time Denise Lewis told me to slow down to a walk.
By the time I got home I had just enough time to log back onto the laptop and open Zoom, before the start of my conference call. Thankfully I only had to listen to a presentation, so did my post-run stretches in front of the laptop - double checking to make sure my webcam was switched off. 😂
The photos were taken last week - in much better weather - on a walk through a different part of the wood which has also been coppiced.
