Don’t wanna go, don’t wanna go, don’t wanna go…

How can it possibly take 45 minutes to pull a pair of shorts on and dress myself in a running vest? This extreme procrastination at 5:30 this morning made me late to work. Note to self – set alarm for 5:15 next time. Aarrgh.

Hill repeats

Every gym session at Wembley Square never fails to irk me. Today on my third hill climb the treadmill just stopped dead. Thanks Virgin Active. Not only are half of your machines out of action at any one time, they malfunction as well. Thank the lord I wasn’t doing speed work because I’d have been over the top and in the pool before you could have said ‘WTF?’
