Reverse Psychology works every time!
Did I mention something big, horrible and ugly is going on at work - you know, the work I love...well, I still love my job, but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, under appreciated and disappointed...I will not post much about the situation until after I talk to my union rep tomorrow morning for the final numbers and payment options.
It is no wonder I am not in a good mood.
Then my exercise partner cancels out workout for tonight - something about Christmas in a week and no where close to being ready.
So, I dug deep and decided to brave the elements and go running on my own.
Me: Do you think jumping from 4.1km to 5km is too big of a jump? I am still at run for 4 min and walk a min.
Hubby: No, you could do it.
Me: What is a good 5km route around here?
Hubby: Go out and Road A to Road B, turn right and follow to Road C. Then keep going to Road D all the way past the shopping centre to Road E and then all the way to Road F, turn right and then left onto Road G and follow back to Road A.
Me: All the way to the shopping centre and back around?
Me: F*ck, I cannot do that!
So, off I went, totally thinking I would do my 4.1 km route...so, I went Road A to Road G then instead of turning onto my regular route, I headed towards road F, all the way to Road E, past the shopping centre, up to Road D and around to Road C, then I turned left onto Road B and found myself on Road A, heading home.
Not only did I do the 5km route - but I did not walk once!!!
Yep, amazing what a bad day, adrenaline and a bit of reverse psychology can do to up your work out!
