So what's that saying, people don't plan to fail but fail to plan?? Yep well that would be me, grrr.
I sent off a little late this morning 7:30am but all felt great. In fact the 1st run went so well I was actually enjoying myself - Yep get me, enjoying a run. So being the smart **** I am I thought I would try out a new route for the 2nd run. I hadn't actually walked the route. I hadn't actually mapped the run. But hey I thought I could run the route!! As I turned the corner I realised I'd made a massive mistake. Facing me was a killer hill, not suprising as I live in Yorkshire.
Oh I thought never mind I'll cut through that field and rejoin the road. Ummmmm, well the field turned out to be pretty steep and the grass hadn't been cut for a while. I manged about 10 step before having to slow to a walk. I walked the rest of the way up the hill as I couldn't find the strength to resume running. Once at the top I started to run again but by then I'd lost my mojo and the run was really horried. Laura telling me I was halfway through didn't help as I knew I wasn't. I have no idea how much of the 2nd run I managed but it wasn't 10mins.
I'm really gutted as this is the 1st run I've failed to do and I only failed becasue I didn't plan. I know if I'd gone my normal run I would have managed it. Oh well I'll redo it on Wed and this time I will stick to my trusted known route!!
