I made the decision to run after home from work today at 2...so I did!!!!!
I had all my usual paraphanalia to take so I borrowed husbands cycling gore to put it in ( which ended up round my waist the whole way!)...
I said to myself, just run home, stop if you want, go slow, easy running...It was just the best run ever...I felt happy and free and wild....proper panthering and so so fun. I think people must have thought I was nuts running along grinning!! I also did some dancing, sang along to my music ( I dread to think what that sounded like as i can't sing and I couldn't hear myself)
Got to 5k...all good, allowed myself a random...10k still good, another random and some vaseline for the lips.
I got to 14k and started feeling tired, so some full on music, mantra chanting and I imagined I was being chased by my hunter as I am a panther after all.....sadly my hunter didn't catch me...and I just zoned in on my running...
At 18k I got my husband to deliver an energy drink which was done relay race stylie as the car went past!!! I tell you that really boosted me, I felt the sugar rushing into my blood and pumping me right up...I got home and completed a half marathon in 2 hours and 18 mins...and I could have carried on a bit more so thats for next week!!! Very happy and just fuelling up on panther treats and having home made kebabs with chilli sauce tonight...yummy!
The pic is a selfie pre run...please note my 'carribean nightlife' new Brooks ( I'm v proud)
Thankyou those who came with me ( virtually), knowing you were there meant the world and made me so happy
