I didn't know what was wrong with me! I was in a grump with work and home and soooo un-christmassy
So when I woke this morning and decided that I was going to try and run for a little while and see how my legs felt. Laura is back on my iPod and I decided to go for W5R1. You remember, run 5 walk 3, run 5 walk 3, run 5....... collapse Well that's what it used to be anyway!
So I was out there, in the dark and the rain with just Laura for company and it felt really really good and I was happy again. I can't believe how much effect running has on my mood and how bad I've been feeling because I haven't been able to run.
So today, I've decided that it doesn't matter how long it takes me to get back to running 30 minutes or even 5K, I'm not going to push myself too hard now. Laura will stay with me for the next few weeks or maybe months, until I can afford to buy myself a nice Garmin or something like. If I need to walk, I will do so without feeling guilty.
And the best bit, I am going to run for enjoyment, so Nike+ is out. Although it's nice to keep a track of your runs and exercise, it puts on far too much pressure and I don't need that sort of pressure. I need to be able to relax when running, I have enough stress elsewhere.
So on that note kiddies, I'm off to do some relaxing baking, which is another thing I haven't done in a long time, and make myself even happier
