So, it is now officially cold enough to freeze my ladybits off out there and I think the days of wearing capris for evening runs are numbered! Since it has also officially been quite a stressy day (have been queen of all things weepy and pathetic), I obviously treated myself to some new running kit. A new top, some running gloves and my first pair of trail shoes. New top is pretty and lilac - nice. Running gloves are sensible - go me. And the trail shoes... well... they ended up being bloke's shoes in a size that is embarrassingly massive!!
New running stuff is good for the soul. I could wish I were running better at the moment though. I'm *still* ridiculously tired and it is taking all my energy to run at all. However, it takes all my energy to do anything at the moment - I had an appalling night of nightmares again last night. Again. But, in contrast to the anxiety of walking outside on my own. In contrast to the panic I feel near traffic where I feel like I physically have to force myself to keep on walking when the urge is to stop / escape. In contrast to the feeling of being completely overwhelmed by so much stuff? Well, running is freedom. It's hard, but it gives me a freedom of movement which I don't otherwise get when I'm outside at other times.
5k of freedom? Definitely worth it. Plus, I have earned my cuppa cha. Which is all good too!
