…… tempted to have a rest day? NO. (well only a for about 2 seconds!)
Dished dinner up, grabbed bright white ‘you are a London marathon reject jacket’ and set out for 3 miles of fartlek (not to do with stomach problems that other Janathoners have recently blogged about), tried to do some hard running interwoven with recovery run, the latter of course out weighing the first-lazy. According to Mr Garmin my quickest pace was 7.15 and feel this must have been reached whilst going past Mr Boot Camps van, was scared he would leap out and offer me a leaflet and thought I best try and look like I did not need to attend the local park to get shouted at.
Ran three miles and it felt better than I thought it would, did not go too far as plan to do double early tomorrow.
Time for a slight rant, I really despise when people say to me ‘I saw you out jogging’, I don’t mind that I’ve been seen or that they feel the need to tell me that I’ve been spotted in unflattering attire looking a mess, but I HATE the term JOG, to me it is a put down, not sure why, maybe it brings to mind the 70’s/80’s when it was trendy to JOG. I never say I’m going for a jog or that I jog I always use the term ‘run’ even though I’m not very fast. In the Runners world this month there is a quote that made my day it is from the New York Marathon on-line running program it says ‘If you are running, no matter how much or how slow, you’re a runner’
So to all you fellow Janathon runners hope your day 12 went well from Shazruns a runner
