My training schedule had 4kms on it today (well, actually for yesterday but I had a switcheroo).
This run was the first that was a little challenging to fit in to my daily schedule. I had parent help in Mr L’s class in the morning (Teacher: what letters did we learn about today? Kid with raised hand: Spider-Man is bad), a long overdue beautician appointment, grocery shopping, bike to the store to get repaired, Mr L’s training after school…yada yada yada. In between the groceries and the bike I stole the half hour needed to check that one off the list.
I found this run to be an equaliser of sorts. After all the rush that had been and was to come, it was the perfect way to take a moment and take a deep breath- literally and figuratively. It was a chance to think about nothing but my feet, my head and my slightly dodgy knee. The time and distance remains unimpressive, but I am impressed that I’ve made it over a week without missing a session. Small victories right? .
Being the middle of the day it was also quite warm. I knew I shouldn’t have complained about how cold it was…Mother Nature says ‘oh too cold? Cop this then!’ I have real knack for handing myself over to Murphy’s Law with my oft-dramatic observations regarding banal subjects such as the weather or politics.
Despite being busy, hot and a bit harassed, there’s another tick on that chart; and that gives me a little smug smile 😉
