With a pre-run breakfast consisting of an apple, some raisins, coffee and BCAA (cant eat so much before running but know i need something!) i was ready to start moving my body! After 2 rest days i was filled with energy and it felt like the time just flew by!!
I didnt have a GPS or music or anything, it was just me, my legs and my mind. But it was kind of nice that way... to not know how far, fast or long i ran... or i mean, i know the time i ran because i had a watch on but i dont know speed or distance. And its sort of freeing actually to not know those, but to just run and really enjoy it. Not have to beat some personal time or distance. But also to run without any music. Ive always thought that its awful and i would never be able to run without any music, but thats not the case... infact while i run i just think of so many things - make to do lists, think of posts to write, have random in my head conversations with people, come up with answers to my school work, have random french conversations etc.... yup, all of this in the space of an hour :) Who says i cant multi-task? :)
If you enjoy running and you often have music or a GPS or something on, then try going without them,... see if you can just run and enjoy it :)
Now im eating breakfast, which you can see below! And it was super duper yummy - quark, home made rice pudding (which looks like just rice!), cinnamon, nuts and seeds, 2 cinnamon crisp bread and cofffee in our new Christmas mugs :) This has now set me up until lunch!
