I’ve fallen back in love with running. I’m sure it will be very very short lived as most of my things always are.
I’ve done the last maybe 3 or 4 parkruns at finsbury park and I’ve been trying to beat a previous goal of doing the 5k in under 30 mins. I was never able to do it but managed to get 29:17 a few weeks ago, then last week and the week before it was just over 30mins (30:18!! 18 fucking seconds!!)
BUT I had ran to work for the first time in a very very long time and managed to run the entire duration without stopping.
I did 8.7km in 54mins which I am so fucking chuffed with. Not even for the time or the distance, just for keeping a good pace and sticking to it mentally for the whole time.
Meowingtons top running tips:
- Have insomnia and wake up at 4am. You’ll have 2 and a half hours at least to phsych yourself up to go.
- Eat a bowl of pesto pasta at 5am because you are very hungry.
- Drink a black coffee and pray to god you don’t need to poo at any time
But does anyone ever have days where they feel like they have no running rhythm?
Some days like today I feel like a gazelle! Then other days because I have to lug around a pair of quite large breasts and a big arse, I feel like i’m stomping about and really uncoordinated and just like i’m running for a bus.
