A weeks holiday plan and my first thought is when can I run to keep on plan. I love the structure but when I’m wheezing at a mere 5k it feels insurmountable.
Luckily I had my friends we were staying with are runners so were there to keep me company. But as I lagged behind those demons appeared in my head “you’re fat, you’re slow, you’re making a fool out of yourself” Trying to put a brave face on it.
I inadvertently did my long run after I took a wrong turn. Problem with running in unfamiliar territory. But got back and was pleased it was done. Also managed a bit of cross training which was good. A few calories burnt to counter balance the prosecco drunk.
I got the job done this week but it feels like a big task is still to come. Come on fitness, please come back I need you.
