Day: 18Time: 83 Minutes
Distance: 11.6 KM
Today was a day of interruptions. As I was running, I suddenly needed to go to the bathroom. So I had to stop to do that(For your sake- I provide no details). Then I jumped back on the machine, started running and suddenly received a phone call I needed to answer. So my speed today was not impressive.
My distance on the other hand, is pretty darn good. 11.6KM is now the longest I have run. It is 2km more than I need to run each day- so I took a lovely nice chunk out of the discrepancy between how many kilometres I have run, and how many I need to have run to date. Funny thing is- I could have kept on going. I was loving it!!
As I walked from the gym, I realised that if I had an entire free day, I would spend a few hours in the gym. As you may have read previously, I am finishing my PhD. When I hand it in, I am going to take a month off. Just to go fishing and read and relax. In that month, I am going to run like hell. The thought of being able to relaxedly go to the gym, run for a few hours, maybe even go have a break and then come back and run some more…. Well that sounds really good to me right now.
But more importantly, it is less than 3 weeks since I started and I am regularly running anywhere from a few hundred meters to a few kilometres more than I need to each day. What’s going to happen in a month?!?! CRAZEE
