Well with my super speedy new shoes I was totally impressed with myself! After work I headed home, had a yummy Nak’d Berry Cheeky bar (which was tasty and not as sweet as the Trek berry bar, I think I prefer this one) and then got my running things together. It was quite warm outside so I was not thinking I would do that well. There were so many flies, one actually landed in my mouth (bleurgh) but I managed to get it out and then swill water about. Flies are not part of a veggie diet! Had to try very hard to run with my mouth closed as there were loads of them, perhaps because it was muggy out? I also had to stop loads of times when crossing the roads (waiting at zebra crossings and things), so I didn’t think I was that quick. But my time was 62 minutes, my fastest ever for that route (just under 6 miles). I have spent more time faffing on the Nike+ website and have added a few goals; so many runs and so many miles in the next 4 weeks.
I think I had a good filling lunch today (rye bread with cucumber and cream cheese, pear and yoghurt) whereas sometimes when I have soup I don’t run so well. Also my new shoes were lovely and springy.
I am looking forward to watching the election unfold tomorrow, after body pump and a shower I can veg out in front of the TV and watch it all start to happen!
I might make some cookies later as my boyfriend is doing the clerking at a polling station and may fancy a nice snack!
