Day 257: Willpower Wednesday
I hadn’t run at lunchtime on a work day all year…until Wednesday!
I finally channeled my willpower enough to get off my bum and go for a run rather than a walk at lunchtime on Wednesday 😀 It was a pretty good run too 😀
I don’t have enough time during lunch to complete one of my 10k app training runs, so I just made it up instead. I did a Zombie supply run as I forgot to download the new mission before setting out and just went for it 😀
I managed 3.5km which is not bad considering I only got out for half an hour.
I have noticed that when I do this “make it up as you go along” type of running, I go faster, but I don’t pace myself well…I run for long intervals the first couple, and then get very short and choppy in the middle and longer again towards the end… I have no idea why this is…
You can see it in the splits though, I am slow, get faster, then slooow then faster again…I think I might need to work on consistency….
however, for now I am just pleased that I managed to get out for a run in my lunch break…and am also wishing I had a longer lunch break so I could do more…
You know what else I did on Wednesday don’t you…
yes you do…it was dancing 😀
It was another excellent Mythago practice where we got to go over dances we learned last week as well as dance some old favourites 🙂look here we are having a well earned tea break in the middle of practice.
Yes we do stop for tea in the middle…we are British you know… it is like cricket, we have to have regular tea!
Except that I don’t like tea (shhh don’t tell the Queen) and generally don’t have a biscuit…
we don’t always have buns…it was Dan’s birthday so it was allowed!
anyway…we did do dancing as well as tea drinking (or not) and these are the dances I participated in:
Our Henry (x2), Sticky dance (x2 + walk), Standing Stones, Triskele, Maiden Castle (in a brand new place), Earth Mother (x2), Avebury Ring, Fanny Frail.
all in all a pretty awesome Wednesday 😀
and…of course, day 257 complete 😀
