Guilty Conscience – A Life Less Blogged – Coke Fiend

Having been preoccupied with a myriad of things over the past week (work=silly, social events=pleasant, Juneathon Party In The Park=fun, Public Image Limited at Shepherds Bush Empire=loud), I felt I should perhaps go for a run today. Not that I haven’t been running you understand. But I haven’t blogged about the runs I had done. And I didn’t blog about the Juneathon Party In The Park on Saturday when Fitartist was awarded her Juneathon prize, we put faces to names, had a little run around Hyde Park and then had a picnic. And because I didn’t blog about the Party In The Park, I haven’t had a chance to mention that (almost) everyone present has decided to join myself and Hauling My Carcass in the mud-fest that is Grim…. Hooray!!!!

And because I didn’t blog about the runs that I did (a 10km evening loop, a 6km morning run and the 5/6ish km that we did in Hyde Park), I thought I should make amends and go for a proper run. Not a fast run but a decent distance. Yes, that should clear my conscience. So I set off this evening after a day sat in front of my laptop for a 10 mile run. I haven’t done this far in ages and with hindsight, perhaps I should have worked up to it. Despite it being overcast, it was still deceptively warm and not thinking, I’d set off without any water. And without a clear route in my head. This meant that I was a) very thirsty and b) having to silly little detours and loops towards the end to make up the distance as when I was on my final approach to home, I was still about 3 and a half kilometres shy of my intended distance. This made for a frustrating end to the run as I was tired, thirsty and running unnecessary loops less than a kilometre from home.

Oddly, towards the end of the run (and this is not the first time this has happened) I began to crave Coca Cola. It must be my body crying out for liquid and sugar and caffeine as I’m not usually a massive fan of it. Maybe next time I’ll just take a water bottle with me.
