(What should have been) W7R1
I'm an early morning runner, though I dont know anyone that actually likes getting up when its cold and dark. For the past 6 weeks I've managed it as there's been a sense of anticipation about what i might achieve that morning. Today that wasnt there. It was even more of a struggle than usual.
I managed to get myself out the house and had already decided on a new route. It started off OK, though I was just over half way round my route when I hit a hill that was bigger than the one I'd been trying to avoid on my usual route. Unfortunately the hill got the better of me and I had to stop and walk about half way up, due to my lungs rather than my legs. The hill seemed to suck all effort out of me and I lost the will to run any more. In the end I completed my course with a mixture of running and walking.
In one respect I'm disappointed - it wasn't to be today, though I am pleased I got out of the house and managed a bit of exercise. I'm not going to count it as part of W7, I'm going to start afresh (on the old route) on my next run.
