Well I know full well Sister of Daffs up there has not done10 miles!!
Neither have I...
BUT I did take running kit on holiday and nipped out for a short 30 mins along the prom and ended up doing 8 miles Felt like I could keep going for ages and ages (all I'd eaten was a slice of lemon cheesecake - didn't even have any water with me but it was evening and not hot). Turned round eventually cos we were meant to be going out for tea and I wasn't going to get back til gone 9pm!
Love it when that happens. Pretty sure I could have gone a few more miles (especially as it was flat!) but poor old Mr Daffs didn't know where I was and it was the first night of our holidays so I thought I'd best go back
Didn't run any more on hols - but we did walk 10 miles the following day and 11 miles the day after that. Surely that must count for something!?!
Lots of driving yesterday and collapsed in a heap when I got back.
Been out and about today, thought I wouldn't get chance for a run but I'm not going to get round the bloody marathon with that attitude so I put on my running kit and RAN to my chicken keeping course
Got there and realised I'd forgotten my bra so poor Mr Daffs had to drive the 3 miles I'd just run - came round the corner triumphantly waving it out of the window
Then ran another couple of miles to meet friend in the park, had baked potato and chilli and a cuppa, then ran another mile or so uphill home, absolutely desperate for a wee
So 6 miles done, carrying a change of clothes in a rucksack. Not brilliant and certainly won't be breaking any speed records but it's 6 miles more than I would have done and I'm pleased I did it
Suspect I'd run a lot more if I did it like this! Does it matter if some of my runs (obviously not all!) are broken up like this? Is it better to have shorter ones (ie 6 miles) broken up, or big long 10+ mile ones?
