Well my August running took a bit of a tumble due to extreme migraines and the hot, hot, hot sun. I agree that it seems dreadful to complain about the heat now that it's getting cooler and we’ll all want the heat back, but there you go 40 degrees plus made getting out a tough ask.
To recap I want to run 2018km in 2018 to raise £2018 for Alzheimer’s Research and August I sort of let myself down, although a humdinger 6 day migraine didn’t help matters.
For the first time since I started I did fewer than 150kms in the month. It’s not a game over scenario, just I lost mileage at a time when I hoped to be keeping momentum. But the upside is now that cooler weather is here, I appear to have found the pesky migraine trigger and have not suffered from one for three weeks. The downside is that the migraine trigger seems to be HRT, so now I’ve dumped the drugs, I am hot permanently regardless of the actual temperature. Still, you can't win them all.
I’ve run just under the 1500km mark for the year, and I reflect that just over a year ago I graduated alongside such luminaries as rolysmate and Mummycav, who continue to do the miles, as does my speedy friend Razouski and MrsT82 who continues to amaze me with her commitment and the fact she’s recruited her teeny tiny daughter to run a 10k!
So many of you help me with messages of support, and have donated to the cause too, it’s truly a fab community.
I can’t tell you how much help that is, and as my little goat hooves continue to trot out the kms, all that remains is for me to wish you all happy running. As part of my community pay back - I am on the case on the next Retro Runners Play list - and a new post on that topic will follow soon.
