Ah, rest days, how I long for these….. Plan for today? Doing NOTHING! And thank god I have nothing planned for today, my body is still so sore I don’t think I would be able to do anything even if I tried.
Its NEVER fun discovering muscles you never knew you had, especially when they are only discovered because they hurt – This is what Christopher Columbus must have felt like when he discovered America only to be threatened by the Native American Indians, I assume.
To get more motivated I went onto Google and searched for some running quotes to get me excited about running again, this is what I found
Jogging is for people who aren’t intelligent enough to watch television – Victoria Wood
I don’t think jogging is healthy, especially morning jogging. If morning joggers knew how tempting they looked to morning motorists, they would stay home and do sit-ups – Rita Rudner
If you start to feel good during an ultra, don’t worry, you will get over it – Gene Thibeault
Ok, so the motivational quotes didn’t help AT ALL!
But I do now know not to run on the road at 6am cos I might get hit by a car, I should just stay at home and watch TV
In other news, tomorrow I get back on the band wagon with a mammoth of a run – the longest one yet. This may be my last blog post, I’m not sure if i will live to see the other side
134 days to go (Insert swear word here)
