Hiya!! after several weeks of various illnesses, i went out tonight after work for a run. I was given a push by my lovely sister in law (who is doing brilliantly well doing her own C25K) to get back out after a particularly stressful weekend so, out I went...... in the pouring rain. Well, that is after i finished peeling the kitten off from playing with my trainer shoelaces!! Honest, I thought at one point I may end up having him strapped on like a lucky charm!
Bloody hell - I didnt know raindrops could be the size of swimming pools!! it did not stop from start to finish and most of the water was either absorbed by my running bottoms or went in to my trainers, slosh slosh slosh I went in between puff pant puff pant .....
went and ran the week before I went off ill from the program. And I made it! it was hard, but do you know what, it felt ok. So much so that I think i ran quicker this time than I did before. How do I know? well, you know when you start a weeks run on the program and get to know the particular bend in the road or a house where Laura asks you to start a run and you swear at her? well, I ended up finishing my final run way before I did before. Weird.
By the time I got home, the amount of water being absorbed by my running bottoms was beginning to drag me pants down! So I was glad to get in before disaster struck and there was two moons!
I got in and undressed in the hallway I was that wet - much to the delight of the kitten who was delighted to be chasing the water droplets coming off me!! everything went straight in the washer. I went up for a shower and then disaster!!!! I remembered that I hadnt eaten the secret sweetie that I keep in my running glove for emergencies and the gloves were in the washer!! Quickly finished the shower and went and rescued the sweetie which was a little soggy through being rained on, but luckily I hadnt switched the washer on so it wasnt as bad as couldve been!
So, im hopefully back with you everyone, running! Im going to do another run from this week and then get back to where I left off. Dont want to push it.
Im sooooo glad to be back out there. It was lovely getting out by myself and stomping away.
Thanks for all your support. Hope you've all been doing fantastically well.
Keep on running everyone!!
