Today was the day for another step-up after my surprise 12k last week. Being vaguely superstitious, I didn’t fancy 13k much, so slowed right down and went for the Big 14. 💪
Another beautiful morning down by the river. Birdsong, sunshine, dog walkers and a few runners too. Oh, and a fallen tree right across the path just after I started - I thought my run was over, but luckily there was a well trodden diversion up the bank. I wasn’t wearing trail shoes so I took it carefully, and was soon back on the proper path, dog stopping to sniff, then she’d dart to catch me up. It felt awesome. 🏃♀️😀❤️🐕
As I’d deliberately slowed down to make sure I got the distance, I was barely even breathing hard. My legs felt fresh and I felt like I could go on forever. Then at 12k (ie uncharted territory for me), they got quite tired but they soldiered on, fuelled by some Jelly Babies!
And so 14k in the bag! I’m on target for my 10 miler on my runniversary in June. Then ..... it all gets a bit scary! 😅😅
Have a great week guys. ❤️
