When I am following a training plan, I am fine, I do the runs, the distance, the effort required on the day scheduled. However being ‘off plan’ (is this the equivalent to off piste for runners?) my runs operate on a very flexible schedule.
In the morning I think ‘tonight I will do a 9 mile run’, by lunchtime this has shrunk to ‘tonight I will do a 5 mile run’, mid afternoon it goes to ‘tonight I will do a 3 mile run’, but low and behold once hubby is home it has dwindled to ‘tonight I will do a 1 mile run’ I am sure this is a medical condition I am suffering from not just laziness. Tonight however I pulled on my kit that was still damp from yesterdays run (ew ew ew) and pushed the boundaries and did 1.5 miles. Go me.
I will leave you with a photo or Riley who has been to the hairdressers for his short back and side.
Just as well its warm.
