I finished work tonight and was dead beat ! Legs were tight from last nights 5 mile road run. Work itself is very tiring.
The thing is I had promised myself a run tonight too.
Unfortunately I have to work overtime and go in on Saturday tomorrow (I really hate weekend working as I have so much more to do during the precious weekend).
So with legs aching from last night – body weary from today at work – the prospect of 6 hours at work tomorrow rushing around and heavy lifting – the prospect of going out for a run tonight was slim.
Morale was low
Motivation was virtually non existent.
I almost resigned myself to a night in the house.
From winter training do summer bodies grow !
I knew I had to get out.
It was a damp misty mild night – tights and vest top to keep the aching leg muscles warm but cool me down on top.
It was only 4 mile but it was on top of the 5 mile I did yesterday and I felt so much better for it. I knew a run tomorrow would be impossible with work and this was needed to allay any depression that would definitely follow a wasted day.
Sunday is bike day !
