I managed a session doing speed this week with the delicious Laura...it was good, and over so quickly!!!
Parkrun on Saturday no PB but I managed my fastest 1 k at 4.53...a bit miffed as I had to stop as my shoelace had undone on one of my paws right on the final sprint....grrrrr
Leon was stressed as he did it in 28 minutes, his slowest for a while...I was trying to explain to his beautiful 12 year old mind that you have to train to get faster...so on that note he declared he wanted to come on my long run with me on Sunday...selfishly I was delighted as he is delicious company and the time goes so much quicker!!!
We then went to the running shop to get my new shoes...sadly no size in for my Brooks...the lady remembered me and said she has told my story to lots of customers ( That when I came in I couldn't walk and then went on to do a HM etc). I asked them to check Leon's feet, and they said his Brooks were a bit tight...he ended up getting mens' size 7...90 quid!!!!!!!
So...long run today..I wore a waterproof due to the weather, and after the last 10k in Devon where Leon nearly got hypothermia he wore:
afer 1k...buff off, 2k, gloves off, 3k..'mummy I'm too hot', 'shall I carry your coat darling?' so there is me with all my gear on plus waterproof loaded with randoms, asthma inhaler, money and phone, buff wrapped around my wrist, his coat tied on my waist we looked a right pair. However...it was a great run, a few grumpy cyclists we grimaced at, a few dogs, a high five and randoms for every 5k and just me and my lad chatting about stuff. I got a bit wheezy at one point and needed my inhaler, and he was so sweet and just talked me through ( I was fine, sometimes my breathing goes wierd and a bit horse!!). We did a HM in 2 hours 15...and I am a proud mum, hes a gorgeous boy and I hope he will always run...he is a total natural....
I so need my new panther paws, mine are flat and the pads have worn down..
Happy panthering everyone,
