Whilst the cats away, the mice will play.
Thus, I can proudly say that I completed my first workout of 2013 on the 2nd of January-nice early start, I know. It was a relaxed 3.3km
I'm a firm believer of 'you only get out what you put in' and considering all the Champagne and ham that has been going in to my body I was expecting to collapse two doors up the street. Thankfully, all my water guzzling paid off, and the first rung on the ladder was a positive one.

However, lots more training is required, because I'm setting my goals high this year. Last year my Sun Run time was 47 minutes and 14 seconds to complete 6.5kms. You may recall me going on about how awesome my bf is, and that she did it in 34 minutes and 44 seconds. Honestly, I'm a realist, and I'm not going to take the view that 'if she can do it, I can do it', because I can't. I am no where near as determined, motivated or diligent as that amazing woman, and I'm not going to kid myself. Let's face it, that will only set me up for disappointment. I need realistic, achievable goals.
I will confess to running 3kms with her a few months ago, and I mean running right beside her at the speed of a freaking jaguar! Seriously. Then I took the short cut back to her house as she continued to run another 2kms whilst I died at her front door, hoping that I didn't puke all over her lawn. Point is, I now know I can run as fast as her if I force my running brain to let me do it, and that came as a massive shock to me, because since school I've always thought of myself as a total slow ass. I would do my best to get Mum to write me a sick note to get out of cross country-and I think she is still a little shocked that I willingly do these runs now. Again, this all comes down to my super fit bf who dragged me in to the first run and keeps me coming back for more. Don't ask me why.
