Who invented time before 8am? Does anything exist in that time (apart from posties and milkmen)? Why is it there?
Well, you’ve probably gathered from that rant that I DID NOT get up to do my run before work – sorry http://steveandkatyrun.wordpress.com think I goaded you into it and didn’t come through my end.
*sigh* So I started the day a bit grumpy as my alarm still woke me up at 7am – I snoozed it twenty thousand times (why did they make iphones with infinite snoozes?) and finally dragged my sorry carcass out of bed at 8.17 giving me precisely 33 minutes to shower, dress, dry my hair, put a bit of slap on (would scare small children if I didn’t) make a healthy nutritious breakfast, eat said healthy, nutritious breakfast and also make healthy nutritious lunch and feed the cats. And make the bed as it just feels too slovenly to leave it unmade. Oh and pack my gym bag so hubby could pick me up from work and take me straight to the gym. I prioritised. Got self ready, fed cats as they can’t do it for themselves (something we might have to change!!!) and packed gym bag. I managed all that with 2 minutes to spare, so into my lunch bag went a tin of beans and a bagel (for brekkie) and a tin of tuna, a bag of salad and a wholemeal pitta for lunch. Felt slightly happier with all those achievements so skipped out the front door into my friends car (does that count as todays exercise??), then realised I’d not made the bed…ah well somethings gotta give during Janathon right?
Todays run (treadmill again)
Distance: 3 miles
Time: 34m 45 secs (another new PB!)
Stationary 3 mile bike ride – 11 mins
Soundtrack: Discovery – Daft Punk
Got to the gym – NIGHTMARE!! Read this blog http://ksweeswee.blogspot.com/2011/01/janathon-day-3-and-small-rant.html and all the comments and that’s what it was like. I couldn’t even get PARKED!!! Nearly turned around and went home then…but pushed on through it.
As today is day 4 I had to choose an album beginning with D. Which would I go with? Dave Pearces Dance Anthems, The Dance Never Ends (new album from Faithless – awesome, saw them in December at the O2 and it was fab!), Dark side of the Moon – a classic, Divine Madness – one to go nuts to…oh so many to choose from…I went with Discovery in the end as it starts off very hard dancey which is great to run to and then chills out to some good cycling tracks with a couple of slow ones at the end to stretch to. Perfect pitch and length for my workout today – it got me through.
So, I got there in the end then – did my run although not at original planned time. V apprehensive about the next 2 days – tomorrow I am working til 8pm so really would like to get it done in the morning, although it wouldn’t be a disaster if I had to do it after work. But Thursday I am going to see Tron 3D straight from work (did I mention that before??) so I HAVE to run in the morning… http://thereisasixpackunderhere.wordpress.com/2011/01/03/any-chance-of-a-cuppa/#comments did Juneathon and said day 8 was her worst…I think it could be Day 6 for me…
Ho hum Day 4 done and dusted – well done to everyone who is still along for the ride – and if you got off for a day worry not – just climb back on tomorrow! Thanks for all you comments too – I’m hoping that accountability spurs me into getting up tomorrow!
