well...I didn't run backwards but I have established my long run route which is lovely, but I go out with the intention of completing a HM but I get stuck at SPAR because thats where I normally get collected if doing a 10 mile run....So, I decided to do it in reverse ( very clever panther I thought, I was rather pleased with myself for that one).
I loaded up with a drink ( Berrocca), and some snacky snacks in the form of sweets. I allowed myself a sweet every 5k, so here are the stats:
5K: Squidge em ( Drumstick flavour)- too squidgy and got rammed against my teeth. Arrived at Spar, felt good.
10k :Haribo rhubarb and custard- too sweet and frankly disgusting. Lots of hills, getting a tad tired.
15k: Randoms ice cream- perfect, it melted nicely with a bit of a sugary rush too. I can't do it, but here I am on Bristol suspension bridge and its pretty, so come on panther, 'push that body, punish that body'.
21.1k : Randoms trifle- nice and melty. Very tired, legs stiff and I kept thinking 'how the f*** will I ever get to do a whole marathon!!!!
I didn't encounter many people which suits me fine as panthers prefer to hunt alone. I had my Ministry of sound 2014 album blasting in my ears, and I managed a few little dances too.
Final scores on the doors: 2 hours 15 minutes and I am happy with that
Happy Panthering everyone
