Ok, really really bad run...heres why:
1. No running buddy ( he had his best friend to play)
2. Mount everest to run up at the beginning. I was already knackered when laura said 'thats 5 minutes done'
3. sore knees
4. Played 'chicken' with a hoodie on a bike on a very narrow pavement. We eyeballed each other, I kept running straight towards him assuming he'd go on the road. ...no such luck, he nearly ran me over, I swerved, then stopped, then started really swearing at him, then I started crying as I was upset and no longer running. Then panicked and thought he might come after me, so I thought I ought to run off...so by default I continued the run.
5. Complex stuff at work really playing on my mind so I was heavy headed.
However I eventually heard Laura say 'last 5 mins' and just carried on...that was soooo hard.I feel flat and worried about carrying on. I only did 4.3k so I am nowhere near the 5 needed for next week. I am now going to have a glass of wine, and look forward to going to the lido tomorrow for a lovely swim as giving myself the weekend off running.
Have a relaxing weekend everyone, julia x
