I was so looking forward to running week 9 run 3 tonight but nearly didn't make it. I've never ran at night before, I'm an early bird but had to change plans due to work commitments. I got home as quickly as I could to start the run but it was just so hot and I'm not good in the heat so I had to postpone the run for a couple of hours. It was so hard to get myself out as I'd started to unwind but out I went. The first half mile was really tough, but I could see my shadow running in front of me and the sight of my big hips spurred me on. After a mile I turned into the sun and it was so bright I could hardly see where I was going. It was like this most of the way. My sunglasses are now in my pocket for next time! There was a couple of times when I felt sick and I found the evening traffic a bit of a nuisance. I had to slow down or jog on the spot at a few crossings. However I kept on going and completed the run even if it was slower than usual.
Thanks Scipio, Oldgirl and mrqwest for your words of encouragement.
