Very busy week this week therefore could not get out for a run until thursday run club night. Sitting on the settee could quite easily have not gone. The excuses began in my head, I’ve had a really busy day only had 3 hours sleep after my night rushed around packing for holiday all day…While they are valid excuses I knew if I just went out for a run I would feel a whole lot better.
Dragged my sorry ass there to meet my friend Rachel and new running pals. Off we set plan to do 5 mile run tonight. Really looking forward to it as seem to be stuck in a 3 mile rut. Really good run went well didn’t struggle too much like I had been recently. Pretty route except for the stinking dead dog at the side of the road!! When we finished I felt like I could have kept going. Stats of run tricky because we stop and start a lot to wait for the group. My memory, whether it’s the blonde thing or post child thing, either way I could just about remember to stop my garmin and then kept forgetting to restart it straight away.
Off on hols now so going to run when away but will blog on return. Will miss run club they really push you along. Half Marathon training really begins on return.
