Hope you had a great weekend. I spent my Saturday with close friends, another beautiful day up here so we had a BBQ.
I am getting to a stage in my running that I am getting frustrated with the MIA stamina! I know it will come back but I am so impatient! I decided today to do two runs, but didn’t plan it well…..
This morning I headed out after 10am (Mr Mac, my dog was at the vet this morning for his yearly vaccination, which interfered with my normal 9:30am run schedule!) and I went back out with my good friend, its nice running with her, we both keep each others pace in check not running too fast nor too slow.
However, could not believe that our enjoyable run resulted in us running nearly 1 min 30 secs slower!!! Both of us saying that it felt as if we ran faster compared to Friday’s run.
Got home to a phone call from school that my son had taken unwell, so this sweaty mess pitched up to collect him!
Now, Mondays is kickboxing night and also to practice my Taekwondo patterns (I am green belt now, working on Won-Hyo, pronounced won-yo) it was a beast of a session, lots of stretching and I feel like I am now 2 foot taller. My leg was shoved in a position that has never been in that position, nor do I expect it to be shoved in such a position ever again. Yes reader, I had my leg literally head height and I had to keep it in that position for 30 seconds. Tears reader, tears sprung to my eyes!
Essentially, my class this evening was all about the stretches, I feel like an elastic band, so needless to say, since I was again a sweaty mess for the 2nd time today…what the hell, lets go for a small run! WTF!!!
I was knackered, I was beat, but I have absolutely no clue how I managed to run that distance in that time.
Think tomorrow will be a Starbucks day, as I think my legs are going to make me pay for this evening!
