The email woman is so keen to be enthusiastic and encouraging she congratulated on one week finished, with the last day of the week still to do! And with two rest days, that means 1/5 left to do!
It was different again, programme wise and out on the lanes. This time it was 6x 2 min run/1 min walk, so all over in half an hour, and easier than the previous two running days. I chose a different route, and immediately regretted it, the start being uphill for the whole two mins. Not too steep but making me breath much harder. Then the road levels out and I enjoyed coasting along in the sunshine, crops swaying in the wind, blue sky dotted with magnificent white clouds overhead, feed pounding on the tarmac, road in better shape than the lower road, recovering nicely in the minute walks.
My legs felt heavy but I felt I could continue beyond the 2 min runs and wouldn’t get too puffed. Just holding it steady. Started racing ahead in my thoughts to the possibility of a marathon. Obviously that is way ahead, but why not? Let’s see how it progresses. Some new sensation in my left shin, a kind of tingle, slightly painful. it soon passed. The crampy feeling in my right thigh, at the back, high up, is still there. I am giving myself a rub now and then during the day, and stretching after the run, and yoga every other morning as usual.
The anger I mentioned I wanted to release is really near the surface, like something is going to burst. Good, it is definitely on the move. Stay stationary physically and I think you get stuck emotionally and mentally too.
I have to eat more – I am loosing weight. Not that I have any scales but my face is looking thin.
So, I imagine same again tomorrow but she’s probably surprise me. Of course it’s just a pre-written auto email, but I like to imagine she’s making it up daily.
