The active choice
Since the 10-miler on Wednesday, I've been feeling weary. I chatted about it with a marathon-running friend and he said it was just my body getting used to the longer distances. I decided not to fight it and took two rest days this week. I love how doing nothing is now an 'active choice' because I call it a rest day. I also actively chose to go on a 24-hour eat-a-thon: porridge with bananas, scrambled eggs and mushrooms on toast, spaghetti with garlic and chilli oil, a spinach and ricotta pastry, one bar of Toblerone, a large bag of Kettle Chips and a trifle. I'm hoping to turn these calories into a medal-winning performance at today's parkrun. Fingers crossed my P.E. kit still fits.
