Today I have been really grumpy and simply couldn't snap out of it. I put 'Run Fat Boy Run' on and watched the whole film. It's a film about a man that decides to run a marathon to win back his ex. The only problem is the marathon is in 3 weeks time and he is very unfit and never run before! I love that film :-)
After watching it I thought about how the main character just kept on going even when the going was really tough. This gave me the idea that maybe if I go out for a run I might cheer up a little.....so I decided to run 10k.
I took some water and 3 gels with me just in case I changed my mind and wanted to run further.
I started running my usual route down by the harbour at Islands Brygge and then crossed over the footbridge to the other side. Then I carried on passed the bridge over to Christianshavn, carried on up to Nyhavn, and continued along the waterfront heading towards the Little Mermaid. I was feeling good so made up my mind to run a half marathon today!
After going past the Little Mermaid I headed all the way up Langelinje and, at the lighthouse thing at the end, turned around and ran home again.
I had a great half marathon run and certainly felt much happier afterwards :-)
