Hello spark friends,
Yesterday was a tiring day. I had loads of work, plus one or two important things to do which took a good chunk out of my day. Also I had a rehearsal in the evening at Versailles, so had to leave home at 5.30pm. I finished my work with some time to spare, and was exhausted. Felt like crawling into bed. But you were all there in my head, and I was not about to break my training programme in the first week. Day 6 was a 40-minute run. The sun was shining but it wasn't too hot. I thought, if I run 40 minutes I can easily get back in time to shower and leave on time. Now, a few weeks/months ago, I would have crawled into bed. But with your inspiration and my new-found motivation, I put on my running gear and went out. had a lovely run along the river, met other runners (including a man who must have been in his seventies) and felt wonderful at the end. I did 45 mins as I had to get home quickly (I obviously went slightly too far, but it was so nice!).
Anyway, all this is to say a big thank you to all of you out there. I felt wonderful and full of energy for an exhausting rehearsal. Concert on Saturday! Should be less exhausting though.
