I am the boss of my running. I am! It has taken a while recently but this weekend, I felt back in charge😉
My local race was this weekend- the Tarbert TT10K and @TheWelshWookie and I ran in the inaugural ‘Dookers Doubler’ which was both the 5k and 10k.
I’ll save the race review for now, but I was pleased with how I did. My 5k time was less than a minute slower than last year, but my 10k time was over 3.5 minutes faster, so I was absolutely delighted! 😀
Here’s this year’s t shirt and medal:
Aren’t they fab?
I stretched my legs tonight with a 5k run, and I just had to wear my new shirt;) it was hot, hot, hot out there but my legs felt good. I’m feeling more confident now, as my attention turns to the Disneyland Paris half marathon next month.
Here’s a little something for today, which has helped me lots:
Have a grand week, all!
Hello, everyone, sorry for the silence last week. I had my hands full, with having three of our nephews for a few days. It was great fun!
I’m just passing through this week to check in, and let you know that I’ve somehow managed to keep on track. Although I did less running than scheduled last week, I’ve kept at it, with a lovely nine miler on Saturday. I felt it a little tough going , and I really had to remind myself that I can do this, and what’s more, I can slow down (yes, even slower than I am) and enjoy it. If that means having some walk breaks then so be it!
So, bring on this week’s training and this Saturday’s ‘Double Dooker’ event 👍🏻
Well, I am back. On. Track.
We ran during the week, and followed it up with a long run on Saturday, I had the Color Run yesterday and tonight we did the whole PiYo round, including putting Flow together for the first time. Boom!
I did the Color Run in Glasgow with my bestie, Pauline, her daughter (my god daughter) Olivia and her friend Holly. It was awesome! I’ll save the details for another post, but here’s the before and after shots:
So, here’s my thinking for his week….
And for an extra boost, I have this reminder from the Color Run:
Sorry for not posting for a week- I’ve been busy, busy with visitors, a short break away and more visitors! I’m back to my routine- such that it is…. Saturday saw me do a 5 mile walk/run/shuffle and boy did I have DOMS on Sunday- my obliques were aching. Tonight, I was back at PiYo and it was tough. Tough after a week of eating whatever I wanted, little exercise and having a few beers and some champagne after yesterday’s Wimbledon final and Euro Championship Final.
Back on track now, though😉
Are you on holiday? Have you chucked the routine and eating well? This has helped me to focus today:
It’s a new week for us all!
