Yesterday I went out for one of those mind clearing walks up to the corner shop and I was wishing I had driven the car 😳 Today was a different story. I put on my running gear and went for a run. I was thinking about Em’s comment to me about the wind in your hair and the sun on the face and I thought, yep thats what is forecast for today, so lets just do it. I ran down at Princes Park and did 5km in 32mins. I did stop for two drink breaks as I think I am dehydrated again but I stopped the watch while doing that. Legs felt really fresh but cardiowise I was a bit huffy and pufffy but hey, whats new?? My average pace was 6:24min/km and max was 5:23.
So now I am thinking of entering the Spring into Shape series 😆 Thanks for that suggestion Sara and Andrew. Have to say though Andrew, it was your comment about the free t-shirt that really started to suck me in 😀 I would have to do the 8km events because they start at 9.30am which guarantees me getting there on time. I know I am not really up to 8km at the moment so I if I do it, it will have to be a walk/run but thats ok, as long as I am out there doing something. I am currently waiting for a new card to arrive from the bank so I can enter on-line. I find entering on the day really stressful, so fingers crossed it gets here on time.
Thanks again for all your encouraging comments in my blog, I am telling you every single one of them was appreciated. I do tend to beat myself up at the best of times so reading your comments reminded me to chill out a bit. Which reminds me Em, I loved your concept of eating well 80% of the time and 20% for fun and I am taking it on board. When you put it like that I don’t actually think I am doing to badly apart from the cab sav at night but thats not food 😉
P.S Thanks for your really kind offer Sue 🙂 I hope our paths cross soon as I would love to meet you.
P.S.S. Welcome back Beakus 😀
