Friday, Friday, Friday

Friday always seems to be a difficult day to find time to train. Today was a prime example, Mrs A was working and started early, I was primary carer until Grandma arrived to take over (thanks Mum). I had good intentions to swim at lunch time, but midday came and went as I was caught in a world of performance reports. A few cups of (green) tea later and 17:00 was rapidly approaching, clock watching started abut 16:30 – must be out by five!! Five o’clock came, I made my excuses, dashed to get changed and dashed around my normal longer work route. 7 1/2 miles later I was in the car charging home for bedtime with my daughter. I had only taken my running gear as a safety net should my swim plans fail…which they did. I have a cross country race tomorrow so running was supposed to be on the agenda, but needs must.

It was a nice run, nice and warm with no wind. Good times. Train streak stretches to 4 days in 2013.
