It was actually snowing here this morning when I got up, I threw my kit on quickly but it had stopped by the time I was ready, a shame because I thought it would have been fun! Never mind, I did my 7.2, in fact I did 7.4 because it was too cold to stop!. If you take off my warm up/down and time at traffic lights, I make it 1 hour 1 minute! I'm delighted with that! I paced myself as I wasn't quite sure how far it would be if you know what I mean, I've only done 7K once before and it took me 1HR 7 Mins so nearly 1 min faster per KM. Happy Curly!
My new shoes were fab, I felt it was them running and just carrying me along! My old shoes have been giving me knee pain for a few weeks. I've also struggled since I had the lurgy in November, couldn't shake off the cough. I saw the nurse practitioner on Thursday because I felt my asthma inhalers weren't working any more, she told me to quadruple my dose of the preventative and use the blue up to 10 times a day if I felt wheezy. I didn't know I could do that, what a difference! A bit of Ibruprofen on my knees and off I went!
I still had something in the tank at the end, so finished on a bit of a sprint. In fact I didn't want to stop, but made myself be sensible, I've heard so many stories of injuries here. Two staff members in different shops told me that to step up to 7.2K from 5K was too much, so I took it gently.
It really felt like it all came together today, I wanna go again!
