Was a little nervous as it's been 4 days and it was already very warm by the time I went out (I'd forgotten to drink at the right time so had to wait to make sure I was hydrated properly). Having done lots of reading about posture and foot strike I decided to try a mid foot landing and increase my cadence (ffs - listen to me....)(ps: that's not 'LISTEN TO ME!!!' but 'who'd've thought...') - it felt a bit strange and slow to start with but Laura's 5 minutes to go interrupt came further along the path than previously and I'd managed to get into a nice rhythm. On the basis that I decided to take everything the challenge threw at me I continued in the hot sun and shade mix and it was lovely (glad I waited to make sure I was hydrated) - which is good because one of my goals is to run in Corfu if I get to visit my mate again while she's still out there! I also smashed - although practically on my knees by the top - an incline I'd been eyeing up, on grass, which leaves one unconquered for post graduation. And I met Julie! Not quite sure why people have an issue with her... yep, the music's naff sometimes but it's reminiscent of a lot of 70's and 80's stuff and she made me think of Jonah Lewie. There's also something earlier with an intro that reminds me of 'There's Something Inside So Strong'. Happy running, peeps.
