Havent been on for a while. Just thought I would update on you on my progress. Some of you will be aware I did my first 10k race back in September. I was really chuffed with the time and I thank my running partner for pacing me through. She advised me to NOT take the garmin as I would run better without knowing how I was doing. She was so right. After the race I had to race ( ) off to Ireland for a week or so. I even managed to run despite the odd quaff of the black stuff.
Keeping up my training was just as well as it turns out my running buddy had decided to enter me in the Great Scottish run at the weekend and for the HM as well!!!!!
What an experience. Thousands of runners. Big crowds and an amazing atmosphere. I dragged myself round the course in 2:03:48. If it wasnt for the "pit stop" at around 8 miles I would have broken the 2 hours but hey, I am exceedingly happy to have completed.
Anyhoo, hope everyone is doing well and beating those personal targets. Keep on keeping on!!!!
PS. The running tights had their first outing today and I didnt get arrested Need to buy some gloves now. It was cooooooollllllllllldddddddd.
