So after the elation of Week 5 Run 3 I was full of confidence and hope as I started the next run. In the gym...first sign of trouble, my favourite treadmill was in use...nevermind picked number 2 favourite, plugged in and off I went.
Half way through the first 5 minute run...bloomin shoe lace came undone...ok ok dont worry...pause-shoe lace-rewind podcast and off I go.
Near end of 5 min run...i think i need the loo...no no you don't carry on..good.
Now the 8 min section...its all ok, I can do this mind over matter ...4 mins gone good keep going and then...
ipod fall dramtically yanking ear phones out and disappearing onto moving treadmill. It all happened so fast-i trod on the phone and the earphones shot off the treadmill.
In a diva style strop I slammed the emergency stop button, picked up parts of my running ensemble scattered behind me, stomped out to the car and cried until other half came and found me. I was so disappointed-could I have started again? Should I have?
Anyway set the alarm dead early this morning and got the gym for 630 and completed the run with no issues My legs were tired towards the end of the last 5min run, but I felt so much better for completing it. Also a bonus to know that running early first thing is also ok too. (I am usually an evening after work person)
Another kerfuffle put behind me!!!
What have I learnt-double knot shoelaces and go to the loo beforehand -always. Keep hands and flailing arms away from ipod and earphone wires!!
Well done to everyone fabulous on overcoming their own milestones and kerfuffles. We won't give up, hey!
