  • Mid week blues


    Jan28201512:15 p.m.

    On Sunday I decided not to do the cross country race. It started at 11.00 and as a family we wanted to go to a local farm to see the lambing and so I decided to get my run out of the way and get on with the day with the family. Yesterday I did 4 miles. These mid week runs are hard to get motivated for. The long runs I plan during the week and almost look forward to them in a strange way, once finished there is a sense of achievement, but at the moment the mid week runs seem more of a slog, even though I would probably have done them any way, now it is on a plan and they are getting a bit longer they seem harder. Rest day today and then 3 miles tomorrow morning before work.
