Where to start with this run?? Truthfully I don't know - I only know that you should NEVER GO OUT OF THE DOOR WITHOUT SOME SORT OF PLAN IN MIND!
Seriously, my running has been, at best, a bit adhoc this week. I ran Wednesday, which meant I should have done another on Friday, but then, I knew I was doing the Parkrun on Saturday, and a longish run planned for Sunday - and what is the first rule of Beginner's Running Club (apart from never mentioning Beginner's Running Club); yes, it is, NEVER RUN ON CONSECUTIVE DAYS.
To be honest, I guess, when it comes to the beginner tag, I was fooling myself, because I was hoping I was past the "beginner" stage; but then read on a runner's blog the other day that we are still beginners until we have been running for THREE YEARS! So, yes, I am still a beginner.
So, I left out the Friday run, did a decentish time on Saturday for the Parkrun, then went out today. I had already decided that upping the ten miles I did last Sunday wasn't going to happen, so I decided that about an hour would be enough; whatever distance that brought me to.
POURING with rain, and I wore my running jacket for the first time since last winter, oh well. Sometimes you have bad runs ... and I haven't had one for a while so it was time one came along.
