Oh wow VRBs, I did it! Never ever have I been so hot whilst running, and it sure wasn’t as flat as they advertised (are they ever?!), but it was an amazing not to be missed experience. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ…β˜€οΈπŸ₯΅

I’ll tell you what, even though it was a lot slower than Bristol, purely due to the heat, my legs felt fantastic and really strong today. I’m so pleased - clearly my longer distances have been paying off. πŸ’ͺ

My preparation was good too. I’ve been eating (mostly) very healthily this week and I’ve had water on the go the whole time. It definitely helped, and I’m so very happy with how I felt throughout the race. πŸ˜€

I got a beautiful medal to add to my collection (3 now!) and I’m psyched for the GSR in October where it can’t possibly be so hot - can it? 😳 I certainly couldn’t have run 10 miles today. Kudos to all the HM runners who were gazelling in as we were heading out, and the ones who finished alongside us snails! 🐌

My daughter (not the pregnant one!) came along with my dog for support. She took a video of me running over the finish line! ❀️

I’m still buzzing (can you tell?!) πŸ‘πŸ‘

Next fun thing, Dexy5’s 50th PR at Southsea next weekend! I love running! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈβ€οΈ

So glad you did it and enjoyed it dear cheeky. That is an iconic run. How brilliant, and you are so fit. How lovely That you had supper and video evidence too.

I think you might get a parkrun PB in Southsea next weekend as it really is flat. Looking forward to seeing you.

Congratulations on running your Severn Bridge 10k this morning, it was hot as you say, did you manage to get near the safety railing which would have made the run a little cooler with the breeze coming up from the water below?, or was that not possible with so many runners taking part, anyway, once again congratulations on a lovely run, beautiful bling you got. 😊 πŸƒ

Congratulations Cheeky, you must have built up a lot of stamina to be able to complete it in that heat! The photo looks more like the Golden Gate then the Severn.
