Two blogs rolled into one! I bet you all thought I let another day of January go by without an exercise involved in there somewhere. Well I think I have probably failed the 31 lots of exercise in January, but I think I have done more than I usually do! There is still time! But seriously, I don't think I am going to make it! I am, however thinking of keeping the 'dry' going at least until Auntie Evie and Uncle Tonys Wedding Anniversary party! Which is next month, on the 18th, so only a couple more weeks! Dash and Hash? Well the dash is of course my mile dash! The Hash, no, not the weed, nor even been, but I did feel as if I had made a hash of my parkrun! (but read on, I have got over that now)
So the first is all about my quick dash to Turn around Lamppost and back yesterday, Friday. Well, what can I say? It was a run of two halves! First half I really thought I had it! I ran my little heart out, thinking about the way I run on track on Thursdays, thinking about what PhysioMikeTheMod tells us. I didn't have my music with me, I just wanted to run this as fast as I could. Well I did.....the first half, but from that turn around I just lost it! I really struggled to find my pace again, get back into the zone. Every time I slowed down or walked it felt like I was going backwards! I really told myself off! Maybe next time I do this I should put my loony tunes in and just not think about anything! Or maybe sort out another 1 mile route and go with that one, mix it up a bit! Yeah, I deffo got to do something! I will keep at it though, I am almost beginning to like these 1 mile dash mornings! I may even keep them going after this ridiculous, non drinking, non smoking, non eating, full on exercise January!
So the geeky stats for that Friday dash, well, I have been slower and not just with the dog!
