There’s no such thing as a bad run
Once you’ve finished! But 80% of the time during my treadmill runs, I hate them! All I can do is look at my distance, look at the time, look at my distance, look at my time in a never ending cycle of self-punishment. You decide to look ahead, or switch songs on your phone, thinking that a couple of minutes must have passed, but then you look again and it’s only been 23 seconds!
So why do I run? Because after I’ve finished, I feel invincible. And on those days where I get to run outside or I’m just really feeling it, even being on a treadmill knowing I have 18 minutes left of a 20 minute run feels great!
And so I’m back in training! I’ve signed up for the Leeds Abbey Dash on November 15th, a 10km that boasts a flat fast course so I’m hoping to PR again, and get under 54:30.
I’m also contemplating signing up for a marathon next year. I’m 50/50 at the moment, as I’d really like to run a marathon before I’m 30 (April 2018) but working full time means that I have limited treasured time with my little girl when I’m not at work and she isn’t in bed. It would need to be a late summer race so that I could get in some hours on an evening after she’s asleep and before it gets dark, I’ll keep you posted!
