This morning I had planned to run. After all, I didn't run yesterday and, since I started C25K I've run every other day. But, for the first time since I started, I didn't want to. My legs felt really heavy on my last run (perhaps I should have had an extra day off after running the 5K Race for Life on Sunday in 35½ minutes!!) and my calves felt even tighter than usual. On top of that, I (somehow) managed to sleep late (it was nearly 7am when I woke!!). Anyway, I thought that another day off wouldn't hurt. I felt a little bit guilty about it and it means I won't graduate on Wednesday as I had thought I might.
And then I realised. I can't run on Saturday anyway as my husband's away for the weekend and I can't leave my little (3 year-old) boy alone in the house while I go running so I feel better about not running today. I'll run tomorrow morning, have the weekend off and do week 9 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week. Two 2-day breaks. Wow!
