Today was the biggie for me- W5R3 and it went like a dream. I deliberately kept a nice slow pace and chose a relatively flat route to give me the best chance of success, and Sanjeev even stayed with me right to the end, so it was all good.
What wasn't so good about today was that after 13 fun-filled happy years, I had to say goodbye to my beautiful yellow Labrador, who was suffering from a variety of ailments (some more serious than others). I've been struggling to make the decision to say goodbye for the last three weeks, but had made the appointment for 5:30PM today and although the vet had said I could change my mind, I would only have been delaying the inevitable, so I stuck to the plan.
Feeling like cr*p right now, so I think I'll be doing a LOT of running over the next few weeks, as I know it can help you work through difficult times, and I think I'll need any help going.
