Isn't it funny how even as novice runners habits can play a big part in our mental attitude to running. I am a morning runner, I know I run best either as soon as I get up, or two hours after I have a carb focussed breakfast. Despite all that, and having trouble getting the podcasts to play, I went for a short run just before sunset time today and didnt enjoy it at all.
Didn't have a run plan in mind (bad idea, no objective = no result) andonly got to the 2k mark before I was bored so decided enough was enough. It cold and damp, but no more so than the mornings, but I think too many things changed and I wasn't in the zone.
Put that one down to bad planning and lack of focus on what I am trying to achieve. Tomorrow it's an early rise, an early run, and Laura on Stepping Stones to give me a new challenge. Just 2 weeks till my charity run, can't afford to mess things up now.
