Planned on W5R1 being a jaunt around the local park while the boys had cricket practice/match. Had not realised quite how small the park was so mapped out a 3.75k route to go on instead. Then chickened out as it would have taken me out of town and through a couple of areas I do not really want to go alone.
Anyway, cricket match did not finish til 9pm so I ended up running in the dark back at home once the kids were in bed. Actually it was really nice - much cooler, and I could just about see where I was going! Main problems were a) the cats decided to come with me and I kept tripping over them; b) our old, blind, deaf dog came along too and I was worried that she would not notice me turning for home and would keep going. Actually she was fine, and so was I. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see how I get on with W5R2. I really do trust this programme not to push me harder than I can cope with - amazing! I never would have imagined 5 weeks ago that I would be on the point of heading out for 20 minutes of non-stop running!
Pilates tonight to give me long lean muscles just like Darcey Bussell (lol, I wish!)
