Running again – on a Sunday never
Well I don’t know what’s happening but I managed to get up early this morning and go for a run. Now Sunday’s are not a day that I’d normally take a run and I’d felt pretty ropey in bed last night, I think I’ve got a bit of a cold coming and I just didn’t think that I’d be up for it in the morning.
My alarm rang and after two snoozes I managed to drag myself out of bed, went swiftly downstairs and had some effervescent vitamin C, changed and headed down to Seaton for a run.
I thought that it would be swamped with runners as I wasn’t exactly up really early and the weather was nice but really there were mostly dog-walkers out and apart from one old runner whom I saw before I started there wasn’t anyone else running (ok a girl on the beach) until I started on my second lap. Anyway I took heed of the frostie warning I had yesterday that no matter how nice it might look it could get cold, so I wore my big lovely warm top which kept me toastie on first length and a bit too warm on the return (still better than being nithering). I also wore my new Steve Redgrave undies (got because they were reasonably priced and didn’t look too bad, nothing to do with me liking wearing Steve Redgrave’s undies aherm) they seemed ok but there was a bit of chaffing – not too sure if it was the undies though.
Anyway not a bad run, a bit of a headwind on the way out and a helpful tailwind on the way back. I did however take it upon myself to try to say hello to lots of people as I was running, this was incredibly successful with only one person (a rather big dog walker) not replying. A cyclist (renowned for their stoic behaviour) even pre-empted my hello with a hello of his own, gasp.
Running watch seems to have crashed, it’ll be days before the battery runs out of charge (sealed cell system too, so I can’t just take the battery out) and I can reset it. It’s refusing all prods and pokes at the moment so I’ll just have to wait to see how well I’ve done.
I was a bit of a bad boy yesterday and had around 11 fags, I managed to even have 2 more this morning straight after my run, smacks wrists.
Aha just managed to get the stat’s off the watch on the Wednesday the 5th
