The day did not start well…
I woke up at 8.15.
I start work at 8am.
I got to work at 9.45am.
Hmm….pinkies were looking at me when I left as well…
GUILT GUILT GUILT……
You may laugh but they do….shoes are very controlling.
Especially when you promise an outing…
I had decided at lunch to run tonight but didnt;t tell the shoes…
So DEEP breath and out I go….
8.45pm at night…
Now I know I should have done a walk/run thing but, people, I HATE HATE HATE walking….
I will gladly run where ever but will catch the bus to go 2 km down the road, instead of walking there.
Shameful but there you go.
First results are………………………4.59kms – 28 minutes…
Not exactly speedy Gonzales at just over 6 minute pace per km but hey, I was HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY just to run !!
Chest was a little tight, I think I went to fast for my first day back..but I didn’t get that “my god, I am going to vomit” feeling.
One thing I have always promised myself was that I would never ever let myself get to the level I was before I started running 7 years ago.
honestly, my first runs were agony, especially as I said, there was no walking involved!!
Yes, i soon learnt but also much gut and chest grasping for breath, that is how unfit I was and i SMOKED!!
I would say I have lost maybe 40% of my fitness.
Best of all though, i feel good, real good, no sign of a black nose sniffing round while running!!
So off to have a nice soak in the bath…
Will report on the new shoes tomorrow.
Have a good one and get out there!!
Run BABY run.
