anyhow, made it out a couple of times this week. As you can see those early mornings are quite frosty! As always, once you are out its great.
Today I ran with music, and on shuffle Paul simon’s ‘diamonds on the soles of her shoes’ came on. I like it because that’s how it feels sometimes when you’re running, like you have diamonds on the soles of your shoes, but of course no one can see them. It’s like a secret pleasure!
Since joining the running club I haven’t been running with them. I did go on Thursday but got there too late and I presume they’d already set off. It was raining heavily, (but I did have my waterproof so I wasn’t put off by that), however when the thunder and lightning started I was glad to be at home!
The other thing that I have been working on over the last couple of weeks is sleep- yes seriously, ‘working’ on sleep? I mean that I have just been making the effort to go to bed early, not drink caffeine or wine in the evenings and get 8 hrs of kip. I wake up early which is good, now I have to work on getting out of bed!
Generally though I’m ready for a break and as luck would have it I have a couple of weeks of annual leave coming up which I’m really looking forwards to. We are going somewhere sunny for a few days and I will be packing my trainers!
Sadly though I don’t think that I have done enough running to even think about the half marathon I wanted to do on 6th April. I haven’t done a proper long run for about 4 months. I have entered a 10k for May so I should be ok for that and plan for a half later in the year.
