So I was a bit naughty and did R1 and R2 of week 9 on consecutive days, because I had really hoped to graduate today as it is my birthday. R2 was actually amazing too! It was my fastest run, and I didnt even feel like I was struggling at any point!
But then this morning - everything went wrong and I gave in to the gremlins at 20mins in. First, my front zipped sports bra came undone, so I had to stop to do that up again. Thats not so, bad so i kept going, and ended up choking on a fly! Stopped again to get that one out, but still managed to keep going. Then not one but both of my shoelaces came undone! I have been running in these same shoes since about week 3, and this is the first time this had happened. So had to stop again to tie these up again. Kept going, but at around the 20minute mark I could feel a blister starting to form on what is usually my good blister-free foot, so I gave up. Even then, walking back I nearly fell over moving off the path onto gravel so someone with grumpy dogs could pass
So I am a bit disappointed, but I guess it just wasnt meant to be So close now though!
