So I didn't manage a run while I was away for a few different reasons (this could turn into a therapy session where I pour my heart out but I'll spare you!), which meant I'd had 4 days off.
I was up and out by about 6.15 am - after dithering about whether it was raining or not, and then finding a neighbourhood cat trying to get into the house as I was leaving I eventually made it, and I was feeling quite good. I had thought about changing my route from running along a road to going round a park, however as it was still really dark and wet I decided to stick to my usual route (with added hills). Yet the hills worked out OK today with the timings, as I was walking up them and running down them.
I much prefer running to songs with words, and the first song on run one really resonated with me and got me thinking about things, which distracted me from the actual physical activity. And the hip-hopy song on the 2nd run had me making up lyrics to apply to my own life.
Overall I think this might have been the most bearable run I've done so far. Hoping W5R2 goes just as well....
