Decathlon, 10k and wet knickers

I’m one of those people who seem to get into trouble without trying. This tends to happen because I don’t think things through. Sometimes it can get me into a spot of mischief and looking like a complete idiot. Other times it makes me looking like a complete badass and living legend. After running 10k the other day, I’m not sure what my current status is.

I feel ill today. No, it’s not a hangover but it sure feels like one mixed with some flu feeling. Maybe it is the flu. I’ll be honest, I don’t really care. Right now I’m lying in bed trying to keep my eyes open while resisting the urge to vomit. Yep, I feel awful. Despite this I still got up this morning and went for a run.

And I had such good intentions || Fitness wishes

fitness wishes and intentions

When I went to bed last night I knew what I had planned for today, and I had such good intentions. But as soon as my feet hit the floor this morning the day started to go badly. Wait, forget that, the day started badly before I has even opened my eyes because I had over slept….by two hours! Not a great start but I was still determined that I would achieve my goals.
