Due to having a cold all week due to too many late nights over the last couple of weeks, my best laid running and cross-training plans (they were laid so well that I’d even written them down in my diary [ok, so I also need a diary to remind me to look in my diary but that’s not the point]) went kaput in a spectacular fashion, in a I did no running and didn’t go to the gym either kind of way.
So this morning when I woke up, it was nice and sunny so I got up early and thought I’d head out for 3 miles so I put on my trainers and picked up my keys and just as I was leaving I realised I’d forgotten my Garmin. Eek. Must be ill. So I go back upstairs and retrieve my Garmin and go out into the grey and the rain which has replaced the sunshine and do what was actually a comfortable 3 miles without the urge to stop. Woo. Which is just as well as I’ve got a 10k next Sunday and I haven’t run 10k without a walking break, a look at the map break, a photo break or a can’t be arsed to run anymore break since, um, the 10k I did last October. Oops.
And we won’t mention the half-marathon I’ve entered in September which is now not only starting to look like quite a long way to run but doesn’t actually seem that far away in the future either. I blame joggerblogger. He put me up to it. Never trust a man with a rabbit.
Good luck to Angela who’s doing a triathlon tomorrow. Stratford Sprint tomorrow, Ironman next year?
