Hi all you blogeroos!
I've decided to do something really "out there" for my graduation run tomorrow. After 9 weeks with Luscious Laura cooing in my ear, I've decided that the biggest run of my life to date (unless you count running for the H37 bus in 2005 which I missed by a whisker -made me late for work) will be without the NHS Choices poster girl brunette. I've made a playlist with my own music. There's some pumping choons on there to get me in the mood with Bowies "Heroes" on the final leg of the run. I'm hoping that it'll do the trick and I won't miss Laura egging me on.
One thing I certainly WILL NOT miss is that flamin' awful "Me and Julie" song which starts Podcast W9. That drives me so mad.
As a cunning trick my meagre brain, I'm going to reverse the running route that I did for RUN 2 in the hope that my brain / legs connection will think it's a new route. That hopefully will allow me to try and break my personal world record time of 29'24sec for 5K! Yeah baby!
I will report back on my progress. I'm feeling nervous. Slightly apprehensive even. But I've come so far in just 9 weeks of running, I'm sure I can do it. Considering I had approx 1,820 weeks of NO RUNNING whatsoever (I worked that out - it's about 35 years!!).
See you on the other side folks!
