This mornings run was not good. It was the type of run that if I had known it was going to be that bad I would have most certainly have stayed in bed. It was the type of run that was not good from the beginning, the type of run where you are meant to be moving like a gazelle but feel more like a thundering elephant, the type of run where your legs feel like lead, the type of run that you would cut short (if you hadn’t-like me-decided to combine the run with letter delivering) the type of run that makes you wonder why you bother, the type of run that makes you think you might not do it again, the type of run that leaves you analysing why it was so bad for the rest of the day.
Why was mine so bad? At a guess there were 2 contributing factors 1) Sundays 9 miles 2) Madam coming in to our room at 3 am complaining she was not feeling well and asking ‘can I sleep at the bottom of your bed?’ the answer to this question was brief and she was sent packing (the cat already had the bottom of the bed spot anyway!) After this I don’t think I slept which may have accounted for the weary run.

Obviously the Garmin was correct in all areas except calorie consumption!
