Ok soooooo I’ve not been putting anything up because well I lost motivation somewhere and haven’t really got it back, as it is I’m suffering with what must be a chest infection.
Oh the joys of winter!
Well Disney is not far away at all and well I’m shit scared I’m not going to be able to run it ekkkk, so I’d better buck my ideas up! So I bring you the first week in my training diary, which I will be keeping (promise!) So if you remember my previous blog post where I said what I was going to aim for well I’m still aiming for that, kinda.
Tuesday was the first of my short runs of which I only managed 3.5 miles and well I do feel like my chest gave up. I stopped half way and sent my other half a text saying how hard the run was and that I was going back, yep that’s never happened before! Today was also the day my mum got to open the post to see if I got into the London Marathon, spoiler alert, I didn’t! Ahhhh well there will always be next year, hopefully!
So I didn’t run again all week, my chest has been suffering and as I’m on holiday all I’ve been doing is having a lemsip and taking cough syrup. Really hoping that I can sort this cold out! Kinda typical, think I got one the same time last year as well!
Also I got married woooop, not your normal wedding but perfect for us.
Sunday my sister travelled up from Wales to meet me so that we could run the Draycote 10K, we we’re both still very much feeling meh after Leicester being cancelled. I’m still undecided on whether I’m going to run the virtual run or not, I feel a wee bit strange about getting a medal for running it even though I’m not if you get what I mean….. Anyhow we still wanted a run and well I still wanted to wear my t-shirt otherwise it would of been a waste so we found the Draycote 10K to run. I’ll do a separate race report on it later.
This week hasn’t been perfect with regards to training I do understand that, but I’ve tried my best, I’m hoping to get out more next week and only time will tell. When I’m back home I will be doing a better plan of action and I will also be on a diet. I defiantly know they don’t need each other but I’ve managed to put on a wee bit of weight and I think it might be one of the reasons I’m running so badly. I also know that I feel better running when my diet is healthier.
