I did the 10k RNLI reindeer run at knowsley safari park this morning. It was great fun but i'm feeling it now. I was fine for over 6k but then it sort of hit me in both my legs and chest! I could see the 7k marker but just couldn't keep going. I stopped running and walked for a while and also took my reliever. After i'd walked for about 5-10 minutes I was then able to start running again. I then ran most of the way for the rest of the event (except for a very steep slippery downwards bit of the woods). I finished the run in 1hr 17 mins 21secs which i was actually quite pleased with
I had to use my inhaler again once i'd finished and unfortunately now the effects are only lasting a couple of hours and i have a permanent slight case of ""salbutamol shakes"". Ah well, it might take me a day or 2 to fully recover but i know i will. Then i get to do similar next sunday when i do the 5k liverpool santa dash
*off topic bit now
We drove through the safari park after the run and after umming and ahhing whether to do the car-friendly route or go through the monkey enclosure i decided to go and see the baboons up close. My car got attacked!!! One of the baboons managed to pull off a strip at the edge of my windscreen - the little monster!!! I've put it back on as best i can and from a quick look you couldn't tell but i'm not sure if my windscreen is watertight now - i guess i'll find out when it rains!!!! Up to now i'm not working on wednesday so i'll go to the garage then and see what they say.
