Flexible running plan

Well I am back on the wagon, not driving it yet, but close.
This morning the plan called for hill reps. Now I love hill reps (not) but was fully up for it today (honest) till I saw the thick frost and envisaged slip sliding up and down, clearly the sensible option was a deferral, I was happy to be sensible. A mid day run was placed on the days agenda, after running some errands. (Got to love a mid week day off!) However, it turned in to a beautiful day, the sun even made an appearance, so I opted to do tomorrow’s run today instead, 5 miles on my favourite cross country route, thus maximising my exposure to some much needed vitamin D. All was going well until half way when my foot got caught on a tree root and down I went, splat. Fortunately I missed the barbed wire and came away fairly unscathed, but muddy.
Would have been safer to do slippery hill reps after all.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    After ten days of bronchial misery, I can barely see the wagon for dust, much less get back up there! So I can only look on your five mile trot as a very wonderful thing, splats and mud included. Enjoy it all!

    after my didaster this morning, I should have stayed on pavements and not gone off road šŸ™‚
