Any excuse to run…!

Haven’t run for a while despite buying new warm running gear so ……

On Friday night I had plans to go to a girls night out at a spa with 9 other girl friends grazing on a few meat and salmon platters, wine and the odd glass of fizz as well as using all the facilities!

A mini bus had been booked but I had to get to the pick up point 2.5 miles away. The kids had been dropped off at Grandpa and Grandmas. My options were to get a taxi, get a bus or run with a small rucksac to the pick up point.

So believe it or not, I choose to run because I needed to do a small run.

I think I had lost my running mojo/confidence since my last 10k (5th race) on 4 October and was beginning to believe I would just give up on running.

It was just what I needed a small run testing out my legs, pace, confidence and new gear.

My conclusion …

– legs, pace (trying out sprints and longer strides) and confidence were ok.
– it’s not cold enough for my full winter running gear yet!
– need to look for a race to enter as I need more incentives to keep on running as my just giving page has not reached the target of £1650 celebrating 16.5 years of marriage of late hubby who died 1 March 2014.

Btw … The Spa evening was lovely! Cheers.
