Day 274: Running around a traffic warden
Ok..not a traffic warden, a parking services attendant…either way it was a person who was going to give me a parking fine if they got to my car and noticed that I had not paid for parking as I should have done…
(note, I do normally pay for parking, but I have a slight objection for paying to park in this car park, I think, if you park there and use the gym rather than walk in to town from there, it should be free…however this is not a view shared by the council…and I was not technically using the gym but shhh)
anyway, just before half way around my run, I met a parking services man going towards the car park, so I looped around, behind him and doubled back to my car, then dithered about for about a minute trying to decide whether to go and pay for the parking or whether to just accept the fine…common sense prevailed and I wend and paid for the parking…this did have a tiny effect on my run times…
The reason km 3 took longer than the others was the dithering!
so apart from that excitement, the run was pretty good 🙂 It was week 4 day 1 of the 10k trainer which was 5 min intervals with 1 min walks. For the most part I managed the 5 min intervals 😀 this surprised me! In the middle couple I had to walk for a few paces extra, but all in all not as much as I thought I would have to!
I was slower over all however than the last run, I think I was attempting to pace myself, and there was a little bit of stopping to get money out of the car to take into consideration!
All in all dithering aside, it was a good run 😀
Day 274 complete with silly socks! 😀
