Feeling like a real runner now

Feeling like a real runner now

Had a mega run yesterday 7KM including warm up and cool down. Something has clicked and I feel like I'm actually running - me Curly! Can hardly believe it! I even cracked the horrible hill, and told it to %$** off as I got to the top! I'm still pretty slow, but that's ok, I'm built for comfort not speed!

Woop woop! Well done and YOU ARE A RUNNER :) Great distance, and you run faster than me (as does everyone on the planet). That hill was huge, good for you - you conquered everything before you :)

To be fair, this does include warm up and cool down walks - the first 700 MTs has an elevation of over 50 MTS , it's so steep it's difficult to walk on and slippery too...The hill I hate is the one from about 4 KM to 6K, doesn't look much on here, but the last bit of it has defeated me on more than one occasion. I did sprint the last (flat) KM when I got to the top of the hill though!

Thanks Teabreaks! You can see I'm still slow too! Had a week off with a bad back, going out for a shortish run this morning to see if it's healed...
