Monday 2 February
I went to bed last night with the briefest of visualisations that I would run first thing this morning, ‘get it out the way’ I thought. Well, on waking up I decided that was a stupid idea and I really like my early walk too much to miss it for a run. So I did that instead.
I needed to do a 5 mile run today and kept a constant babble in my head about how I was going to do it, when I was going to do it, should I even do it…and did eventually get myself out the door. Previously I have tended to run for half the distance in one direction and then turn round and you’re done. But I found that incredibly boring and seemingly endless when I did it for the 6 mile run last week, so thought I’d do something different.
I know a 3 mile route as I used it for my 5km runs before and I walk 2 miles each morning, so there you have it 5 miles. However, to do this would mean running right past the road to my house as I headed off on the 2 mile run. This took quite a lot of internal chatter, but in the end I decided that the shape it would make on the Endomondo map was worth it 🙂
Another one done.
