3rd time lucky to type this post so I won't attach the photo of myself looking very red in the face after my run and I will keep it brief!
I ran a very slow and steady 25 minutes to complete R3 like run 2 I didn't use the podcast or music.
When I hit around the 20 minute mark I started to feel really stuffed up. By about 24 minutes I felt I could hardly breathe - as if sometime had been put over my nose and mouth! I got a bit panicy and had to tell myself to relax and not long until the 25 minute mark! Thankfully I managed it and had a much needed 2 1/2 minutes brisk walk before having a short run (forgot to time it!).
Finally after a brisk 2 minute walk I ran the final half km to the finishing line! Phew I did it! Me! With only 4 1/2 minutes walking! Whoop, whoop and another whoop because I can!
Out of the 436 runners, I came in 367th with a time of 36:31 I'm a very happy Panda!
Dare I say WEEK 8 - BRING IT ON!
