Long run was postponed yesterday due to a long hospital appointment. Nothing serious.. just normal waiting times. Anyway OCD kicks in again and cannot possibly run with my normal routine interrupted. This proved to be beneficial because I do not indulge in the vino/ gorgeous food that weekends are for !! from Sunday.
As always, before a long run (or any really) I read your posts and sometimes respond with cuppa in hand and pj bottoms on! After all, Skype calls cannot see below the desk!!
Nor do my emails see the fact that a suit lives in the cupboard that rarely see daylight unless I am called out of my elusive wife/ Director's PA state and have join in, in the corporate nightmare! The joys of working from home - I recommend it really!
I digress, The point of this is that I finally achieved tonight what I never thought I could!! I made it to two further bridges (not just one!! Two!). A wonderfully dry evening, scenic as always- it just felt right. At 16k my hip stared to ache so took a little time to stretch it out and it was fine.
It was a tough run towards the end. I must have looked so pitiful for that last k because I knew it was slow but I did it!! 23k!!! the ultimate goal for me. The shivering has now gone . The copious glasses of milk are working a treat and I am able to string a sentence together again. Albeit not as coherently as I would like !! nevertheless I have nothing more to prove to myself, I can run half marathon distances but I am going to start enjoying my shorter runs and playing around with speed. Thanks Moger for you support today
Hope all you wonderful people who have your individual goal reach them too! Have fun! Dog tired!.....
p.s The first part of the GPS never records because of my location x
