Week 8, run 3 - another one bites the dust

Week 8, run 3 - another one bites the dust

Since the start of the longer runs, I've been leaving two days between runs to help my recovery. I last ran on Thursday morning so would have been due to run tomorrow morning but I'm having my 12 and 8 year old Nieces stay over tonight, so tomorrow was out of the question.

After working nights a couple of times this week, I couldn't face setting my alarm for a run, so ended up setting out on my route at 10am. Boy did I find it tough this morning! I wouldn't classify it as a bad run but it was hard going. More than a couple of times a met a gremlin or two telling me to stop and i almost did a couple of times but I thought back to the book by Ruth Fields (run, fat b!tch run) and summoned my inner grit doctor who told me in no uncertain terms to keep moving ;-)

I'm so glad I dug deep and keep on going. I can't believe that I'm about to enter my graduation week :-) :-)

30 minutes here I come!
