First things first, after my 10 mile run on Sunday I finally signed up for the HM, I had delayed by long enough and didn't have any excuses left after Sunday's run.
Today's run was a recovery run because I'm still getting over Sundays run. I ran the 5km in just under 5km and it wasn't that easy, but I guess running 2 days after a 10 mile isn't meant to be.
It was raining heavily today and it was the first time I have run in this type of weather. I put a long sleeve compression top on and a t-shirt on top, that kept me comfortable. However my glasses fogged up and was covered in water so I was half blind my the end!
On a separate note I sent an email to everyone at work to ask for sponsorship for my HM run and included my weight loss in the past year (27kgs). I sent it to a few overseas colleagues and by chance was on the phone to an Irish colleague based in Germany. Half way through our call he must have read my email and said "Bloody hell Aftab, 27kgs lost in less than a year", unfortunately for him I had put him on speakerphone by then and a dozen people heard him! I had to tell him he was on speaker and that we could discuss my weight loss later!
Anyway 8km to run on Thursday.
