Last night it was Chile vs. Bolivia in Copa America, got to bed at quarter to 1.
Woke up feeling sluggish but my partner made me porridge and I knew i had to give it ago.
The first 5km were awful, my breathing wouldn't settle and my knee was starting to niggle. Then as I crossed the bridge the knee niggle disappeared and my breathing settled. I don't know if was psychological or the fact I was now heading down hill.
I managed to get to park without too much trouble and actually felt OK to tackle the hill after 8.42KM. It actually wasn't as awful as i thought. At 14.5KM i was getting tired and glad i only had 1.5km left.
Here's my run if anyone fancies having a look.
I forgot how heavy it is to carry water but how very necessary it was. Running conditions were lovely as it was actually warm but not too hot.
I didn't feel awful afterwards, went to park for a wonder around but now I feel tired.
The website was suppose to open today for the HM race but it hasn't so I will need to sign up next week. I am going to give it a go!!
