Not today thankyou


The 26th day of Juneathon…

Earlier today I was feeling quite up for a good run and was planning 6 miles.  I  got on with doing what I had to do and planned to run about 4pm.  By 4pm I was feeling less enthusiastic.  Even less at 4.30.

I dragged myself out about 5 and I was right about being less enthusiastic – I felt tired and weary and had no pace in my legs.

Must have been the day for bad runs in Kensington Gardens because even at dragging plod pace I managed to overtake a young male who looked like he was having an even worse day then me.  I went on to see at least 2 other runners who were definitely limping (or just had really bad gaits).

My hamstrings felt tight and my knee was pulling so 6 miles was cut to 3 and I headed home.  As typical good feeling and pace were restored after 3 miles so I rounded it up to 4.

4.07 miles

Juneathon running total…   114.83 miles

  1. Definitely getting to the end – I was supposed to do 6 and turned back for 4! Well done for getting out though, 3’s better than none. Hope you feel better for tomorrow x

  2. well done! nearly there 🙂

  3. That was me yesterday. Felt better today so hopefully you will feel better tomorrow. Still rounding up I see.

  4. Four miles feeling tired is dedication! Great mileage.

  5. I appear to have caught your rounder-uppering. Some of the parkruns on Sunday came in slightly short and I found myself running on until my garmin registered 5k.
