I’ve just been out and done my first 5k in quite a while. But boy....🥵...it was not easy!! I got the attire completely wrong 😬! A very light hoody (but a hoody all the same! What was I thinking? 💭 🙄 😂), leggings with shorts over the top for the convenience of pockets (thought I was smart with that one! 🙄🤫 🤣) and well ....it was tough🤪!
I totally underestimated the heat 🔥🔥 , as it looked really dull, as though it could pour down at any minute. I stupidly thought I’d go out and enjoy a bit of a cool breeze. But cool breeze? 🤣🤣...was non existent...it just kept getting hotter and hotter🔥☀️🔥☀️🔥☀️! By the time I was half-way, I was praying for Storm Helena (I think that’s her name and I hear she’s on the way🤔) to “stop messing about”, being on your way 🙄 and come right now!! 🥵🙏🏽☔️
And...you can probably tell...my prayers were not answered!😂 I thankfully had some good guided running that just kept me going. I certainly wasn’t going to get home any sooner, so I just had to accept that it’s simply going to be a tough run today 😬...and I’ll learn from it!! 🤨🤣🤣
A slow 5k, but understandable, given the length of time since I’ve run that far and the glorious weather 🙄....that I did not order 🙄🙄..🤣!!
Well it’s done! “Storm Helena...well YOU can just forget it now! That prayer’s off...so there!😂 And I can go and cool down in the shower now anyway 😁!
I’ll be a bit further on the LEJOG Tour now too!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🤩 I think that’s a great reason to smile!! 😁😁
Happy Running Runners! ❤️
