Well I thought it would be ok when I signed up last month as I would be a 2 week graduate but I didn't bank on two things- 1. The heat at lunchtime 2. The pace!!
There were 3 categories: 4 laps of the park for the runners (5km) 3 laps for walkers/runners and 2 for walkers. So I thought I would do the full 5km (well being a graduate now!) but the 1st person was back in 19 min and I was last at 31mins.
I should feel good about that as it is the fastest I have ever run but I didn't enjoy it at all as I am not used to doing laps and the heat and of course coming last..... I don't feel like a proper runner anymore....maybe I should just enjoy competing against myself!
