OK - so 80mph storms are possibly a good excuse for not going out and doing a long run - possibly.
But cleaning the house ?(my excuse on Friday for 8.5 hours - during which time I managed a whole sinkful of washing up!)
What other valid excuses are there...
'must spend more time with the family' (translation ...sitting in front of computer with RW forums open.)
'must sort my clothes for next week' (ie gym kit - not work clothes - I'll just wear what I can find)
'must clean my shoes' - ie handwash trainers
'must write a few letters' ie update running log
'need to let a couple of hours go by as I've only just eaten' ie 'and if I keep on eating and drinking then I'll never go out as you shouldn't exercise just after a meal....'
'must plan annual leave for next year' - ie look at events schedule and plan family's holiday around that
Why is it that when you're not running - it takes up more time than when you are ? Going out for a run is the quick bit!
