I meant to run earlier, when it was sunny and lovely, but decided to wait until I got home so I could use my garmin to track my pace. Then got home, had a cup of tea... Then it got dark, and it didn't seem such an attractive idea to go out.
So I logged on here, and caught up with yesterday's posts, added a few comments, and my daughter said, 'Are you going out running then?' Me - 'No, but I'm reading about it!'
I'd decided to leave it until tomorrow, but then remembered extra meetings that would make it much harder to fit in a run, and decided I'd better stop using lame excuses and get out there. I don't much like running along pavements in the dark - streetlights are ok, but don't show up all the potholes, sloping bits and doggy delights. I was a bit slower than last time, but not surprising as I was watching my footing so much more. The garmin was misbehaving - couldn't find the satellites for some reason, until half way through, so I just timed it instead.
Anyway, I'm glad to say that I kept going for 30 minutes - though only by telling myself I'd just do 15-20, and then I kept adding 'just another couple of minutes' on the end until I'd got to 30. Not the best run ever, but it was ok, and now I don't need to run tomorrow, I can do a couple of short walks instead (maybe). Next time, I'd do better to just run when it's sunny - or have the garmin with me all the time.
