I am following a Runners World programme to prepare for a 10k. I am only doing easy 2 mile runs this week so have been getting up and doing them early. I told myself that I could have a lie in today (have been having too many late nights) as I had all day to fit today's run in, it being a Saturday.
I woke at 7, which is a lie in for me. It was lovely and sunny. Although I told myself I didnt have to, I still got up straight away, put my running clothes on and, after just a mouthful of tea and a bite of a banana, went straight up the woods with the dog. It was lovely run. Challenging as its very rough/stony/muddy, but perfect running conditions, cool, no wind etc.
I came back feeling so proud of myself as I tend to be a bit slow getting my backside into gear on a Saturday morning after rushing all week.
I am now even happier I got the run done early, as the sky has just turned black and the heavens have opened!
