After the chilled out run on Monday I was hopeful for the same again tonight - the temperature had dropped a bit too so I was confident my graduation run would be fine.
It was tricky! I found it hard to get into a rhythm and my breathing was a bit ragged. The first 10 mins were tough, then I settled but my legs were heavy. I had a hot flush too which didn’t help so I ended up beetroot.
Anyway I did it (I was doubtful at 5 mins) and I’m a graduate 👩🏻🎓🏃🏻♀️ - a slow one, but I’ll take that for now! (Actually looking at the stats it was 35s/km faster than Monday 🤔🤯, and the first km was my fastest so far - pacemaker buddy did a good job, no wonder I was bloody knackered!! 😜)
Thank you so much to all my virtual run buddies, those who started the same time as me (as flew past me as I went on holiday) and those who met up along the way. You are all an inspiration and motivation to keep going ; I really could not have done it without you all. Also thanks to the admins for your great advice and periodic reality checks to keep us off the IC.
Need to think about consolidation now while I work on my spreadsheet 😬
