Despite the 2 hour bike ride on Wednesday, and the VERY long hours driving yesterday, and my daughter waking me at 1 in the morning with an SMS to remind me to do something today, and being at school from 8 - 2 with a numeracy summer school....
I managed to drag my weary and yawning body in trainers and set off at a brisk walk down the steep hill to the canal with the intention of running 60s then walking 90s 4times, turning round and repeating before dragging my body back up the hill to home.
I failed... in one sense! My body gave up after 10 mins, so I left the towpath at the first bridge and walked briskly home.
In another sense I succeeded! I got out there. I DID run. (not for much but I did run) and I even forced my body to walk briskly back up the hill to home.
It may not be much but it was a start. The reason I gave up so quickly is probably down to the fact that I forgot to take my inhaler before I left and my chest felt very tight.
All the way home from school my mind was making excuses NOT to go.. I need to do food shopping..my trainers, although an excellent make... are 5 years old... Im tired after the busy week etc...
Im glad I made the effort. I will try again on Sunday and then again on Wed. In time there WILL be an improvement!!
