I learnt something about running this morning, which I haven't encountered so far in the programme, and that is: always have something to eat before you head out. I know it sounds obvious, but I heard from someone a few years ago (who also has a body like a tank) that going for a run first thing in the morning, before you have anything to eat, is the best time to go.
So I thought I would try this "expert" advice today. My verdict? It's a load of rubbish. Actually, I could probably think of a better adjective to use, but I know what the rules are about language! I felt ok in the first 10 minute run, but I was only a couple of minutes into the second run when I started feeling rubbish. My calves were sore (a first!), I was absolutely roasting, and all I wanted to do was walk.
Long story short though, I did eventually finish the run, but I remember willing Laura to tell me I only had 60 seconds left. I still feel the same way as I did way back in the first week, and that is that no matter how horrible a run is at the time, it is always worth it after. Even if it is when you're having a scone and a cup of tea!
