so, went out after work for another splutter. its been 8 days since I last went out because of one thing or another (wont be doing that again!)
tea in the oven waiting for me when I get back - instructions to me fella to keep checking on it and if it burns he will be paying for chippy tea (grilled pork and Mediterranean veggies in the oven in case you're wondering
off i went. sun was shining but there was a little wind to keep me cool as i puffed along (still wearing my little bobble hat by the way, but memo to self, must wear me peaked cap next time in the sun as I could hardly see a bloody thing)
and puffed along I did!! did two lots of 5 minutes and then I rocked the boat by doing an 8 minute run. Yippeeeeee!
I did have to "dig deep" for that last one but I genuinely think that the sunshine helped and I also kept saying to myself ----- "I can do this, I can, I can do this, I can" (sounds bit like a steam train....
I know sometimes I need a kick up the bum and you kind people are right behind me to do that (in a nice non-physical way of course - unless I meet you on one of the Park Runs or the higher ones in the future, then you have my permission.....)
but, although last night was hard and im aching this morning, I can say i enjoyed that run.
may that be a first of many
keep running everyone and thanks for all your support. thanks too for your own blogs sharing your own experiences, its brilliant.
