With Madam going to running club tonight I thought it was time I stop using the warm weather as an excuse not to train and get out there and RUN, whats god enough for an 11-year-old is good enough me for except for the reluctance to showering of course .
I was looking forward to a very slow 3 mile plod, not quite adhering to the training plan but pretty darn close. However, when I dropped Madam and her friend at Harriers the freinds Dad was there with his kit on clearly with the intention of running with me. Steve is 6 foot 2″ at least and of slim athletic build-I am not even close to either! I was worried but there was no way to go off on my own without being rude!
I made it very clear I was not speedy by any means and we set off, Steve leading, obviously, for two reasons, I was doing his route and he was faster than I wanted to be! I am pleased to say I did not embarrass myself, we ran at a fairly decent pace given the undulating course and the heat, it was certainly faster than I intended to be. At three miles I called a halt to my run, feeling the heat a little, Steve was more hardcore and continued on for a while.
Must admit it felt good to get out there again, lets hope I remember that early Thursday morning when I am next due to run.
