Back in the groove

I enjoyed my circuits session on Monday but have sore tummy muscles again today. In fact, I felt them yesterday when I started to swim breaststroke. Nevertheless I really enjoyed my gentle swim, sauna, jacuzzi, lunch and - most importantly - time with my friend. Then I went to get my hair done as I had forgotten my appointment on Friday! I did feel a bit of a muppet when I turned up for my club run with nicely 'done' hair, and it certainly didn't stay like that for long once we had started.

We did a hill session and I resisted the urge to go sprinting off like everyone else. I took it much more slowly and made sure that I was in control for both the up- and down-hill sections. The hill was much too steep for it to really be 'Kenyan hills' and we did have a breather at the bottom, but it was the best I could do. I was certainly nearer the front at the end of the session than I had been at the beginning. I actually feel as if I have lost some speed recently since doing longer distances. We are doing the Eastleigh 10k on Sunday, so I will find out whether that is really the case.

Mum's 80th birthday today and she's having a party for about 30 family and friends. I can't say that I'm really looking forward to it, but needs must etc.

Sluggie- you are doing very well with the club sessions. It must be helping with strength and stamina for your longer runs. Hope your tummy is better now.

Happy Birthday Slugmummy!

Great to see you're feeling better again. You never know you might just surprize yourself in your 10K.
