Today I was accused by the Janathon community on twitter of slacking. And it’s true, today I was.
I didn’t have the energy or drive to get out and run today. Even when it stopped raining and looked quite nice out. I was just plain weary, probably because I’ve been increasing my training but not getting as much sleep as I should. I felt it yesterday at BMF when I struggled to move my legs and pick up any speed.
I procrastinated and even made a cake and cleaned the oven but @jogblog told me that cleaning ovens and making cakes didn’t count as exercise. (I should have taken before and after photos to prove how much a task my oven really was!)
I was reminded that slacking was not an option… Made to feel guilty that I was tempting others to slack and asked for photographic proof of cake!
I ummed and ahhed about getting out for a short run of maybe 2 or 3 miles but in the end having run out of time combined a trip to the shop with a half mile run there and a fast walk home carrying two bags. Now I’m trying (but failing) to get to sleep before 11pm.
The cake was fantastic by the way and was very quick and easy!
