The alarm went off at 5.45 am and I struggled for motivation again...so I turned over deciding I'd run another day. Well guilt got the better of me and I headed out of the door at 7.40. It was light so I decided to runout in the country on a new route. I thought I was struggling a bit so it would be slow...and I was back in the hills again... and the last km trying to dodge sleepy high school pupils stumbling to the bus stops. When I got back I was pleasantly surprised to find that I'd run for 7km at a pace of 5:49perkm. Further than I've run before and still at a reasonable (for me) pace.
...and as I'm out for a meal tonight with friends...that's 561 calories in the 'red wine bank'
