With the iPod playing ‘everybody hurts sometimes’ quite appropriately, I set out for a long slow run, correction very slow, very long run. Very tough going today, legs felt fine but felt sapped of energy so the mind had to take over to get me through the distance. As I err on the stubborn side (very slightly you understand) I am pleased to say I made it!! Yippee. But what a struggle.
Stats for today
- Saw 10 other runners plus (all making it look easier than it felt for me)
- 1 pile of dog poo avoided
- 0 liquid consumed on run as forgot to get energy drink (stupid I know)
- Favourite song listened to on iPod Lollipop by Mika
- Most aprropriate song listened to on ipod –keep on running
- 1 detour made as path flooded and no wellies on
- Clouds in sky zero
- Time it took-too long
On arrival back at house jumped in shower, consumed toast & a banana & a cup of tea lovingly made by hubby, then it was out the door again in 25 mins to take my budding Frank Lampard to her footie game. Loving hubby mentioned that maybe to give myself more time I should have only done 8 miles my reply went sort of like “yes darling but I did not realise I would be sooooooooo ********* slow”
Game went well and Lampard played well (hope the real one does today) it was a 1.1 draw and the goal that got past my little defender was a beauty and she did not stand a chance of getting to it unless she was the green giant.
Home for a well deserved bowl of soup, her ladyship had chicken noodle which I had to dig the corn out of, then only got marked 9/10 for it as she found a piece, cheek, must stop her watching Come Dine With Me.
This afternoons activity is feet up on couch in front of Furry Vengeance.
Huge thanks for advice on Pitta bread cutting, will give this try tomorrow and will blog the result, must think of another culinary conundrum to keep you all busy,
Enjoy your Sunday run Janathoners.
