I completed my 3rd personal 5K this morning. My best friend was out walking her dog with her partner and spotted me, she wasn't sure if it was me at first, until I got closer when she could see my red face 🤣
I was on my 2nd lap and paused my Fitbit for 2 mins, but kept moving about on the spot, not to lose momentum, haha, then I continued. Had a tightness in chest on the last lap and felt a slight panic attack and felt very hot, but different to the heat from running, but I carried on. Felt a bit odd since then, as if I'm in for a cold, but I'm so glad I persevered and on new territory too, so that was challenging, but I think a change of route now and again is good when running.
Also achieved 124 plus miles for September. My challenge was for 150, especially as I was on holiday, but time wouldn't allow, so I've gone for the 100 miles instead. For me, personally, I tend to need a push to do things like this, so by me gaining confidence with my health etc, I'm setting these little challenges which don't put too much pressure on me and they give me confidence to keep going. Never done this before either. I think a medal and tee shirt is offered for the challenges. Anything for a medal 😂
I think of everyone doing their best on here and this is what keeps me going. You are all top runners in my eyes, truly the best who have started from scratch at some point in their lives. Rooting for you all.
Hope this Relive link works guys. I don't know why Strava has a different time, but correct time is from my Fitbit.
Thanks for reading this xx
