Running into 2019…Part 7

This week I have felt much better and have finally had the spring in my step back! There has been no sickness or cold, however there is currently a ‘runner’s toe’ situation occurring which I won’t get into, but if you do fancy checking out what I mean and grossing yourself out, click here.nnAs much as I love running around Pitsford Reservoir, it’s getting a little tedious. I don’t think it helps knowing the route inside out because mentally I know what’s coming and psych myself out. I’m also not a fan of all the hills, I’m not going to lie. So, this weekend I plan on trying a flat new route, Draycote Water. It’s roughly a 5 mile circumference so I am going to try …wait for it…3 laps, ‘try’ being the operative word; my toe can’t wait!nnOn reflection, I have also disagreed with myself over music whilst running. I went out for a short 3 miler and didn’t put any headphones in, I ran the best I have in a while. I reckon it’s because I can hear my breathing and regulate it better than when I plug in and drown out civilisation. I will be testing this theory further this weekend.nnIt has been an incredible feeling having the support from my family, friends and especially my colleagues. Not only did they put together a pyjama day, they have set up a Quiz Night to help me raise more money and hit my target. If you enjoy a quiz then please get a team together and book a table, there are many awesome prizes and it’ll be a great evening supporting an incredible charity…so let’s get quizzical!nnnnThanks,nnCamnn
