Juneathon day 17.
Todays run was about staying in Juneathon and not letting my Sunday laziness scupper my progress having run everyday so far and clocked up 67 miles.
I was having a lovely lazy day watching movies with the boys who were both home with no plans or exam revision and fitting in a few chores in between and during the adverts. I did get changed into my running kit after lunch but never quite mustered the motivation to get away from the cheesy sunday family movies and out for a run.
Then it was 6pm the ‘Oh dear, now or never run time’ but I was even more reluctant to go out because Dirty Dancing had come on! But no excuses for Juneathon so I got dinner cooking and dashed out for a loop around the block.
I was only planning a mile or so around the block, but as usual however reluctant I am to get out the door a few minutes in I feel good and am happy to be out running. This evening I felt I was flying along at a decent pace (must be the 80’s music) so decided to extend it to 2 miles and then 3. Although when I got to the front door it was 2.92, near enough. I wasn’t mad enough to keep going past to round it up!
Dirty Dancing was still on the TV when I got in, even though the boys were moaning about it being “even worse than Twighlight” and OH had remembered to drain and mash the spuds.
I’m glad I did my longer run last Thursday. I find it much easier to get the motivation to get good runs done midweek. I think I will organise myself to keep Thursday mornings free during my marathon training so I can get those long runs done either then or on Saturday mornings and keep Sundays as my day of rest and sofa surfing.
Next weekend however I can’t slob out. It’s the Longest Day Run (have you signed up?) so I will challenge myself to run an appropriately long distance between noon on Saturday and noon on Sunday as my Longest Day Run.
