Today Was A Good Day

At 0805 am, my friend Marion collected the kids and they were off to school as usual.  I had arranged to meet her later at the Atlantis Bar just across the road for 0900 am, so I had enough time to fit in my run.

Arriving at 0824 am, I managed the first two laps comfortably within my stride. It was 19C and just the right temperature for running – I felt good as the cool breeze blew gently by.  The sun came out halfway through the run and although I felt a little uncomfortable – 30 minutes later, I was glad it was over.

Now I need to improve my stamina so that my legs can pound the track even longer.  Perhaps not a tall order after all.

Yes, true to say – today was a good day!

Out on the Track

The kids left for school this morning at 0800 am and I jumped in the car at 0810 am to head for the running track!

What a sight for sore eyes!  Can you believe that I was the only person on the track?  What a feeling.  The first lap was laboured, but I managed to focus my thoughts on regulating my breathing and literally heard my legs plodding the track like an elephant as I pushed through the pain spurred on by a Peven Everett music track on my iPod.

I kept repeating the lyrics in my head – you got me in your eye,  got me  in your eye, got me in your eye – do it  again, do it again, do it again – come on girl, come on girl, come on girl!  That (including a lot of sweat and rain) got me around the 4 laps and I felt thoroughly exhilarated afterwards –  job well done!
