I’m going to attempt to write a post every day during the month of November as part of NaBloPoMo. I participated last year while on maternity leave and loved it.
So here goes:
Day 1 – National Blog Posting Month.
My last run of October was a wet and cold one. As husband was putting zombie make-up on the almost 6-year-old, I sneaked out for a quick run. I was feeling kinda crappy all day, probably because I’d drunk too much coffee and didn’t eat enough breakfast. I did manage to have a tuna sandwich and a couple of glasses of water about an hour before I set out so that made me feel better. Around 2.5 km I felt like turning back but I soldiered on and before I knew it, I’d run 5 km. Even more surprising was my time and my splits. Despite feeling tired and needing extra 30 second walk breaks during the last 2 km, I still managed a pretty decent pace and the splits weren’t horrible.
Surprisingly, once I got home and stretched, I felt so much better! And I love that I wanted to go out for a “quick” run and finished 5 km. I never thought I’d ever say “quick” and “5km” in the same sentence.
