Well it’s been a while…
Busy busy bee at work on Wednesday, and was gearing up for my 7k run after my shift.
Off we went and I learnt a valuable lesson…
You know that body of yours that Mr Charles Darwin spent millions of years perfecting through evolution?
My poor body had been working frantically for over 2 hours attempting to digest and source some form of nutrition from what I ate for tea and I wasn’t helping my digestive system out.
I had Spaghetti Bolognaise WITH WHITE PASTA. Very bad choice and one I won’t be making again. I was in agony during the run. My stomach was able to complete the course about 10 minutes quicker than me, I was that bloated!
The only thing that was getting me through was ‘Mindful Breathing’ – bringing my focus of attention back to the breath, how the air feels, how it smells, it’s temperature etc etc. I finally got through it but during it had to ask the husband how far we’d gone three times (I was supposed to be on a ‘Naked Run’ – no focusing on pace, distance or time).
I finally completed it in just over 50 minutes.
I WILL NEVER EAT WHITE PASTA…AGAIN…EVER!
Then after a horrific shift at work yesterday, I had neither the mental or physical strength or will power to do my 5k! I’m going to do it tonight, after seeing Superman and having a Nandos tea!!!
I WILL DO THIS RUN!
13K tomorrow and I’ve just bagged free tickets to see Bon Jovi at Slane Castle so I will HAVE to do the run early! I WILL DO THIS RUN!
I only know 4 songs from the set list…oh well, they are free
