Workout Soundtrack: –
4.9km 28:23 (Westminster Mile, shakeout run)
*This post was written on 27th May*
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I’m not really in the mood for writing so I apologise in advance if this isn’t the best thing I’ve ever written on the blog!
The 25th of May will now and forever always remind me of Loki – today was the day I gave him to Battersea Dogs Home to give him a shot at a better future with a loving family that has the time and resources for him.
Thankfully it won’t just remind me of that though! It will also remind me of one of the funniest, and funnest, runs I have ever done. Gabs and I decided to head out for a muddy trail run in the early evening in a bid to fight off the doom and gloom of the preceding hours. It worked a treat and we both found ourselves running through huge puddles, ankle deeps in mud and generally running and jumping about like children for half an hour. It was the most unorthodox run I’ve ever done and certainly the most unorthodox post-race shakeout I’ve ever done – I think it might have to become a post-race ritual in all honesty because I had no care in the world for distance, time or anything other than having a laugh with Gabrielle and stretching out my muscles.
I can’t say much else than that really. I suppose you can take this post as proof that running is great therapy – go out, run fast, run slow, jump around, laugh, smile – it worked for me.
Peace & Blessings
