So I was all grumbly like this (photo warning: may scare small children):
and had decided that if I walked past the gym and there was a bike available - I would be riding not running.
But then I got changed and did a silent bitchslap to myself and said "A run will make the grumblies go away so just do it" I pulled out my prescription pad and wrote myself a remedy for the grumblies.
My calendar called for speedwork but I didn't want to do it (See? I really was in a most disagreeable mood).
I took off out of the building and just let myself go however fast my body wanted to. Before long I was huffing and puffing. So I alternated the pushing and the puffing with walking and guzzling water...and ended up running 5.6km in 35 mins.
and at noon on a pretty warm day...
and now I look much less grumbly...and think I am MUCH less likely to tear peoples heads off.
Especially after a lovely calf stretch in the shade...
Check that first km! 4:51!!! May be a new land speed record for me. I must have been even more pissy than I thought.
