This morning I had the most awful run. The plan was to run to Princes Park, meet Simon and do 3 laps then run home, making it 16 km in total. Well I run to Princes Park okay but when I got there I could have quite happily gone back home to bed.
The first lap took forever with walk breaks and stretch breaks and toilet breaks. I didn’t time it but it felt like a long, tough time. The second lap wasn’t so bad and the third one I just wanted to get done so I could go home.
I don’t think early morning running is good for me. Late morning isn’t so bad but this morning I practically got up, got dressed and headed out the door. I think I need waking up time to get all the body parts working. Plus I didn’t eat. My new fave pre-run breakfast is english muffin with banana – gives me lots of energy without sitting heavy in my belly. I skipped that this morning and went straight out running. Well okay, I’ll be honest, since I didn’t have any muffins, I had a handful of tiny teddy biscuits. Not at all a good idea.
On top of that, I saw my physio yesterday and she did a lot of work on my hips so not the best day for a long run.
Oh well at least I’ve got my run done since it’s going to be 33 today. It was nice and cool this morning and quite a bit foggy.
