Todays planned run was 1 mile jog 1 mile fast 1 mile jog, this did not go to plan. Ran Madam to school following her on her bike and carrying her book bag and then set off to do said planned run. Very early on I knew this was going to be a struggle, I tried honest but the pace would not come. Why I pondered cannot I not run today as I plodded the 3 miles. Came to the conclusion that the WW Lasagne I had had for dinner (and before 9 mile run) was not enough fuel to keep me going for another 3 miles some 15 hours later. I knew now that I should have eaten a banana before setting off! I have never been so grateful to finish a run before! In the door inhaled a banana, showered, ate porridge and set out the door for the sporting event of the year.
The dreaded school sports day.
Madam came 4th in the orange
Mother came a very respectable 4/5th (Please bear in mind am at least 10 years older than the other Mum’s and it was ruthless out there with elbows being used, better get in training for next year if they are taking it this seriously)
Off to gym tonight.
