Been a busy week so only 2 runs, meant to go to running club Tues but it was FAR to hot @6pm, and i had no suncream/hat/enthusiasm!! So aimed for Weds instead, got in from work late and after walking George dog, and making date and walnut loaf for Dads Birthday (Thurs), stuck that in the oven along with frittata for tea and thought"time for quick run while its in !" couldn't decide between flat run and hill,wierdly declared"i think i'll do the hill!"( i was in that frame of mind for a challenge!!) last time it took 24 min there and back, so @9.15pm, lovely and cool, set off! And i made it! Without sitting on the bench for recovery at half way point! Got shouted at by some boy racers half way up hill"GO ON MY DAAARRLINNN!!!" felt a bit embarassed, maybe the fact that they went past me from behind so i didn't see their faces made it better and they could have said lots worse stuff so i took their advice!! and i flew back down the hill to my 2nd fastest1k -5.56, which made me pleased! part of it was on the footpath so lots of midges to avoid swallowing but apart from that it was almost ok!! definitely easier than last time and frittata ready when i got back!
Today was my 11th parkrun, quite hot along the seafront and felt quite sick going up the short hill at 4k, but made it! And according to my Garmin it was my fastest 400m, 1k, half mile, mile, 2 miles -WOW! thought it felt hard!! Don't have the official time in yet though!
So a good week mostly(discounting work!) just off th my friends "Hen picnic" and the sun is shining
Happy running everyone!
