Day 134 - Angry Running

It's been a long week - well thats an underestimate... I can't say anything really bad has happened, but there have been a collection of minor niggles & frustrating things that have all built up.

So, to prevent an argument at home (which I wasn't helping - to be honest), I decided to go for a run into town instead. So got changed, found iPod and started out, conveniently the shuffle option came to my rescue and found a motion traxx  (Episode #49: “Mean Streak”) which worked really well. It got me into town (5k) and I was still energetic. 

On the way in I remembered that I have a dualathlon in a few weeks time (5k run, 20 cycle, 5k run) so why not try that this evening, so off I went to the gym for a 20k cycle. I was really pleased as I did it in just over 41 minutes this time, nearly 4 minutes faster than Monday.

I must confess, by this time I was getting a bit sweaty, so I didn't really want to hang around too long at the gym once I finished. So, off I went home (a slightly different route) to have lots of  water followed by a relaxing bath.

Oh, and now have broken 300k in training :)

Hmmm, there is a ParkRun in the morning, I'll see how I am then ...
