I spent the day glued to my computer in the name of work only broken up by darting out to run one or two urgent errands and chauffeur a lazy teenager to his last GCSE exam. Thank goodness they’ve finished because he can stop pretending to work and I can stop stressing!
It was nearly 7pm when I finished the worse of it all and downed tools. My back ached, I was tired and cross-eyed and in need of a glass of wine. Do I have to run? I got my shorts on quick and pushed myself out the door for a quick 5K nip round the block.
It was very warm so I didn’t push myself. I wasn’t in the mood to be a molten mess gasping for air. I just tootled on, lost in my own thoughts and found myself extending my loop as I went because I was comfortable and it was so nice to be outside, free, away from it all and unwinding. Plenty of other runners came huffing and puffing past me looking all hot and sweaty. I left them to it and kept it easy. But maybe not so easy when that guy was trying to overtake me nor on the downhill stretch home. Wheeeeee!
One of the good ones. I really needed that run and felt so much better afterwards.
