Had a rough couple of days at work, holiday displacement, and not wanting to be stuck inside the souless box I work in and dealing with returning student issues.... any teachers on here should recognise this one! Anyway, the thought of today's run was the only thing that got me through. Having realised that running around a local rec is rather boring I thought I would liven up my mid week schedule and do a run along the river nearish to where I live - it is a big tidal river and the shore is sandy muddy shingle! A very different running experience that also included a rather undignified scramble mid 5 minute recovery, which made me really pooped. Still, I persevered and am convinced that 16 minutes on shingle
and slightly hilly woody cliff top tracks is more than equivalent to twenty minutes non stop running (can you see my cunning psychological ploy here!) on what will be a nice flat footpath - where my next run is planned.
So, I await Sunday in fighting form, determined to complete my first full 20 minutes (even if ridiculously slow). Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone else about to do W5R3. Have a great weekend all.x
