Over the last week I have been very lazy. Repeatedly putting off doing exercise (gym/run) with no real excuse in fact baring a fairly intense spin session on Monday I have done nothing else even though I think I have taken gym kit into work every day! I decided that I wasn’t going to miss out on a long(ish) run as well so as I was at Laura’s I opted for the hill run upto her nans.
I have done this route once before, last time I only did the uphill stage and got a lift back, this time I was going to do both stages, after all the down should be the easier part! After a 3.5k incline (first 1.5k high gradient) I reached the summit At this point I decided that I would run this as a 10k so added a loop at the top (and at the bottom).
The run itself was fairly non-descript, no amusing things to keep me entertained, saw a number of other runners and walkers out and about. I assume this was because the weather was fairly pleasant and this was further demonstrated by how sweaty my t-shirt was when I got back.
Glad I did the run as it made me feel less guilty about the 2 barbecues I was about to have that day! Going to try be a bit more self-motivated this week. Under a month till the London 10k and with a sub 48min possible I’m certainly not going to get this by being so lazy. I suspect it’s also time to prob start thinking about the next run as come mid July I have nothing to train for which will feel slightly odd!
