all day ive been absolutely knackered.
you know how it can be sometimes - even to walk is an effort. my talking was gibberish, slurry. i yawned so much my jaws ached. i didnt even have the energy to eat my milky way bar (and that's not like me at all). so, i wasnt up to going out tonight. i thought id just have an early night with my new book.
but when i got home and saw my muddy trainers in the hall way (i swear they were grinning at me......) i gave myself a severe talking to instead!! i kept reminding myself that its not meant to be easy and was just making excuses. what's half an hour?? So, i ate a little lump of cheese and drunk a little water, strapped myself in and went out.
was a nice evening actually, couldve left my jacket at home. but i still went out in my woolly incognito hat.
managed the 3 minute run and the 5 minute run. i timed that just right for a downhill bit then just before the next 3 minute run it suddenly hit me. i honestly thought that if i had to stop after this 3 minutes, i wouldnt be able to do the 5.
i gave myself another talking to (i may resort to whipping if it gets worse - should be a sight to see anyway!!) and decided that i'd run for 5 instead of 3 and then finish with the cool down walk.
and that's what i did. i ran for another 5 minutes and so that means I owe laura 3 minutes.
phew!! just about made it home. managed the key this time and going up the stairs was by normal steps rather than on all fours. but when it came for a shower, i was that knackered i forgot to take me specs and woolly hat off before stepping in!! hey ho.
so, have now had tea and am sitting down waiting for my ankles to stop throbbing before I hit the sack. up early tomorrow .
im out Friday night and Saturday so i think i may do my run 3 on the Sunday evening and see how it goes. i am a little disappointed that i felt unable to do the run as Laura wanted me to, but i absolutely knew how it wouldve panned out if i had carried on as directed.
so, next try Sunday and may be i can give Laura her 3 minutes back somehow .......
keep on running everybody!!
