Hello you wonderful person that is caring to read about my running. I appreciate that.
I woke up pretty exhausted and didn’t fancy doing this 3 mile “easy run” outside so I decided to plonk it on the end of my gym session. Christ, the dreadmill is so damn boring, isn’t it!? Definitely don’t want to be making a habit of treadmill running, it definitely doesn’t do as much good for my noggin as it does to run outside. Also I was a little bit naughty and ended up switching up the speed between sprints and slow jogging (not the paced easy run it was meant to be) as a result of getting so bored on there. Hey ho.
YAY so that was the biggest Run Talk Run we’ve had to date! There were 6 of us – only 5 pictured – and it was SO lovely to jog along and have a really good chinwag with some familiar running faces and also some new ones too. RTR ambles are definitely the most joyous runs of my week.
After an emotionally exhausting morning, followed by the car refusing to start (dead battery!) I decided to give Wimbledon Half Common a miss. I am feeling more compassion for myself than I have done in a long time regarding a DNS. I had my reasons, and they were valid.
Mixed feelings about this weeks running. If I’m honest, there has barely been any running at all. Just the 3 miles Monday and RTR Thursday. I am looking forward to giving Week 3 more of my energy and dedication, AND I don’t have any halfs booked now until June (Yay!).
