Today was supposed to be a 10 mile run but that just didn’t work out. I could sit here and come out with one reason and another for why I didn’t do 10, but it just comes down to the fact that it’s Friday and I was tired. So we covered 7 miles in total, ran about 5 miles of it and walked the other 2.
These were junk miles – Elaine had explained the concept to me at the start of the run. You know how it goes – the training plan says you need to do x miles so you go out and do x miles when really you want to sit on the sofa eating chips and drinking G & Ts. It’s also known as phoning it in. That’s definately what I did tonight, Elaine was kind enough to say well done but the pace says it all. I would have been better off doing a tempo run – 3 miles in 33 mins job done but instead I prolonged my agony over and hour and a half!
Ah well, I am going to a Martini Masterclass at Christophers in Covent Garden tomorrow, and we’re starting with Champagne at St Pancras at 11am. At least I burned off the calories I will no doubt consume tomorrow!
Have a fun weekend everyone xx
