I had promised myself I'd go out at lunchtime - but I failed to get out the door
I have to recognise that unless I have arranged to meet someone to run I HAVE to do it first thing, before I am awake - otherwise I can always find an excuse
I'd like to go out earlier, but on a school day I can't go out until I've seen the teenbeanzes out the door really
Arranged to meet TP today at the gym and go for a run.
One of the receptionists spoke to me and said she'd been out with the running club last night - and sorry not to see me. Explained about slow running - and she said I was NOT to let that stop me going - maybe I will give in and go back.
We debated how far to go, I didn't really have time for more than an hour, so we agreed on that, but will increase the time by about 15 minutes each week.
And it was good - drizzly and grey, but off we went along the river path, stopping at each mile to stretch the calves we chatted throughout - TP having more breath to chat than me, but I did manage to talk, so not too fast. Did not have HR alerts on, but chatting meant it was probably about right pace.
And when we got back I found I had been going quicker than I have for ages :>)
