Back to being ‘Productive’

My Garmin has been making me feel guilty recently by telling me that I’ve been unproductive or detraining. I wanted to be back to being productive.

After a rare night out on Friday, I really didn’t want to get up on Saturday morning. (By rare, I mean the first time that Stuart and I have gone out since I had Baby M!)

Stuart, M and I arrived early enough at parkrun for us both to chat with friends. I was quite grateful that I didn’t have to run with M, but I wasn’t feeling up to doing a hard run.

As usual, the start was fairly slow because of the size of the crowd. I spotted a friend up ahead and managed to weave through a couple of people to catch up with Nat.

It was really nice to be able to run with someone. We had a bit of a chat (but not too much as I’m not fit enough to run and chat at the moment). Thanks, Nat, for keeping me going 🙂

Southampton parkrun 26 August 2017

After the run, Stu and I were supposed to be rushing over to Riverside Park. We were going to take part in a Brooks 5km run. I knew we wouldn’t make the start of the race, so we just had a leisurely cuppa with friends. After checking my Garmin, I was delighted to see that I’ve finally got my Training Status back up to ‘Productive’ again.

Did you parkrun this weekend or do something else that was productive?

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
