That was what I was thinking in the last run of tonight's episode!!
I was umming and ahhing all day as whether or not I had time after work to go out and start this week's run. Oh, and whether or not I had the energy after a particularly rubbish weekend. in the end my heart won out due to my overwhelming need not to let my charity team down during May' s 10km I've signed up to!!
So, home after work, dinner in the oven, washer on, off out I headed. Nearly went arse over tit tripping over the kitten on the way , so was delayed a minute whilst I gave him a lecture on health and safety in the home ...
Out eventually and the first run went, ok. Passed the local running team going hell for leather, chatting away. It a lot to resist the urge to go up a gear to their speed
Welcomed the walk bit after first run. felt ok though, recovered enough to do the second run of 5 mins.
But the third run of 5 mins? boy oh boy oh boy!! Mind over matter indeed! Seriously, there was an abandoned wheelbarrow on the grass verge as I ran and I really did think to sit in it and push myself home!!
But I didn't. I carried on despite my lungs and legs wanting to collapse and came one step closer to finishing this program
Just got to keep this mind over matter vibe going...
Keep running everyone
