slight blip in my shiny new plan. First, I couldn't decide if I should do speed podcast or just run for 30 with my own music (my printed plan ignored for today!) Then I thought about some other blogs I've read, where people really enjoyed just running, with no music, no time or distance targets, just running. And I thought, 'yep, that's what I want to do for my first post grad run'. So I'm in my running gear. All ready. Anticipating that wonderful feeling of being a 'real, grown up' runner.
First hurdle, daughter washes (very long) hair before school and misses train. No probs, I can run her to school, grab some bananas on the way home and then go for my run (ever the optimist).
Second hurdle, get a call from the guy who borrowed my boat (I'm not rich, it's not as grand as it sounds!) telling me he left the keys on the boat...........in view, doh!
Breathe......breathe..........breathe. No problem, now I've decided where I'm going to run. We all know I am no friend of hills, so I will go down to the car park, warm up walk along the towpath, retrieve keys (assuming boat and keys are still there) and run along the towpath. Might even leave the iPod behind.
