I banished the demons this morning and conquered my old 10k route I haven't done for months. The last time I did it I got to 3k, and had to ring the GP as I couldn't breathe....then ended up getting loads of inhalers for my asthma. All good now, but I had a mental block about it...
I did it wearing my usual vest, capri's, buff and sweatband and I was BAKING. I squirted loads of water all over myself and made a point of jumping in cold puddles to cool down ( quite fun too). The only fuel I had having had no brekkie was 3 manky jelly beans I found in my sons bedroom ( I really must clean in there...) but they were just enough...Panthering again felt so good and it blew the tangle of cobwebs away too which is a bonus.
Finally the end was in sight and it is that final push I always find hard, particularly as I could see our neighbourhood watch-type neighbour giving me the eye, I was dreading him complaining again about our cockeral Cody, who likes to wake the neighbourhood up at 4
I managed to get past him and finished in 59.33...a new PB for a 10k hooray!!!!
BUT I am going to have to find some comfortable shorts and ditch the BUFF because its getting HOT out there...
Happy Panthering everyone
