I really didn't want to go out this evening. I had a few things I needed to get sorted, I was tired, it was blowing a gale along with horizontal rain & my running partner couldn't join me
My evening meal was ready for me when I got in as well - how could I say 'no Dear I have to run and can't eat that delicious meal'! 90 minutes later the rain had stopped and the sun was shining
Motivated myself to get suited and booted and off I went. It was a cold one so I took my headband. After all my traumas with headphones falling out I had found a pair that stayed in place, or so I thought - unfortunately the new headphones weren't compatible with the headband and kept coming out! Argh! Oh well - now I have headphones for use with headband and those without it.
I felt marginally better this evening - less sluggish although still doing a pavement shuffle. I definitely felt faster at the beginning of the run & even sped up before Laura suggests at the end. My final time proved it and I nearly covered 4km. I don't think that's too bad considering I spent half the run running into a headwind (the route meant I didn't benefit from the tail wind).
I'm quite pleased with my time etc but I'm most pleased with the motivation to get out and keep going!
Here comes week 8 - can't believe I've completed 21 runs
