Monday 25th April set off on little run (Yeah Right!!) usually I drive to the canal run (See previous posts) but this time i was feeling up for a run & set out from home.
What a warm day it was, i was glowing redder than my hair within a few minutes and chomping on a cola bottle sweet (To sustain my energy) at the usual point on the canal where i turn left, this time i went right into uncharted waters. I'd had a look on google & it was longer than my usual run, so feeling confident i took this turning.
Again mind & body weren't really in sink so pace wasn't it's quickest but as it was a new location i was enjoying the run. (Except for the greenfly) Listening to the podcast of the 10 O'clock show had me laughing out loud, the fisherman must of though I was rather strange! Well no more mad than someone running in the hot sun.
looking at my phone I'd noticed the Endomondo hadn't located the GPS so after 40mins of running it hadn't tracked anything. this is what i hate you run a small/quick distance it always track. but the bigger runs, when you want to look back with pride on what you've achieved!! NOTHING!!! arrrghhhh!! (This happened on my first 10k run last year, I could of wept) Thank god my Gamin forerunner 50 is working, or I'd never get my times.
Whilst I'm on about weeping! since the Nipple injury of a few weeks ago, the boys as I'll call them do seem to be rather delicate, with this run proving no better, having slapped a load of Vaseline on, whether it be the sun or my delay in going straight out, the Vaseline had rubbed off. I wished i had the body where i could go bear chested, but alas not with my moobs! i would scare the people I crossed!
When your running along roads, canals, woodland paths you don't feel very self conscious about yourself but when running along a busy road & high St, that s another matter. From mile 8 to 11 that's what i was face with, running past blokes outside the pub (Who'd had probably been their all day) & groups of teenagers staring at the ginger bloke in Lycra runners leggings trudging past them, was something else to take on, but still i carried on! Also including my phone switching off completely with a couple miles left. I hope this doesn't happen Sunday. (I think it's upset that I want the Samsung Galaxy S2 next month)
Making it home in 2:20:32 not a quick time but it will do for the amount of stops & walks I took.
Not only did i do my run but cooked a lovely roast! Which tasted even better as I'd got it on special from the co-op £2.50 from £9. You'll find out that i love the orange co-op reduction stickers even more than running...... Well it's all loading for my runs!
