I must admit I have a secret weapon that a friend recommended – for goodness shakes. It’s a new recovery drink and apparently if you drink it after training, it can improve your performance by up to 40% the next day. I drank my 1st one after yesterdays run and look at the improvement. It could just be psychological but who cares if it works?? If I drink one every day then I should be performing 280% better by Monday next week, which means if I’m running 12 minute miles now I’ll be running 4 minute miles by next monday – is that right??? Haha, either way if it means I can do a bit more mileage it’s all good!
This run got me thinking – my mileage for Janathon is now 64.8 miles – for some reason whilst I was running I got it into my head that I want to get to 100 by the end of January. That means I have to average 5 miles a day for the next 7 days, when throughout the whole of January I have only run 5 miles once. Now, I know it’s a bit mad, especially as it’s the last week of the month which is always busy with long days for me, but I am going to go for it…I have enough shakes to last me til Sunday, and I want to prove to myself just how hardcore I can be. Right now I am floating on cloud nine and it feels like anything is possible – let’s see how we feel tomorrow!
In other news, I must share with you some amazing knitting courtesy of abradypus – we got to chatting about her knitting and cats, and it ended up with her knitting me a cat…well not a real cat but a picure of my cat! Look how good a likeness it is…
Isn’t it fabulous!!
Am going to sign off now – it’s 10.42 – taken me an hour to upload this as my virgin connection keeps dropping out. By the way, thanks for all your comments re room colours yesterday – great to know we’re not alone!!
