Well I knew this morning as I was trying to get some work done that I was going to attempt it and due to the weather round here and my inability to run on my own outside (accident prone) I went to the gym.
I did think when I got to 4K I could just do another 1K and get the 5K in the bag but was a bit reluctant to save the best/worst for last this week. Was happy with my pace - fairly slow but steady - and the gradient and decided to go for it. Coming up to the 6.5K mark Spotify started playing The Beatles "Back in the USSR" - 'Ha ha topical' I thought and decided to turn up my phone to blast it for extra oomph. Sadly I pressed the emergency stop button on the treadmill instead and spent the next minute flailing around like a mad lobster whilst I tried to reset the machine. Not dignified, not dignified at all. Anyway I reset and ran the rest and visualised the Badedas Man FlickM3 meeting me at the finish. To be fair he wasn't interested and is probably cantering his way up to you right now. I'm just happy I got the long one in the bag this week.
