Yesterday I had to do my first 5k of 2010. I had been dreading it all week and went on a small emotion version of Nemesis before I actually just got the damn thing over with (thanks to some additional motivational texts from Lou). It was horrible! It’s amazing how you can block out the discomfort of that kind of thing. It also reminded me how important mental commitment is. I have not been ‘there’ since the New Year and as a result (not helped by a bit of tiredness and dodgey breathing because of the cold) I gained 33 seconds on my PB.
One happy result of finishing my 5k erg was I got to have a nice bath and start my day off! I had thought about going in to town, but instead I decided to clean the house. I have spent a large portion of the day cleaning and now the house is all sparkly! A clean house always makes me very happy. Now I think I will go and make some dinner 😀
