Well today started well, baby b3an woke up at 5:30 so out I went for week 7 run 3.
Set the GPS off and my stop watch and the podcast. Walked 5 minute warm up, then just about to launch into the run and my MP3 has a wobble, while running manage to get it going. I was going to try a different today but as the MP3 player was not behaving I decided to keep to a tried and tested route. So it was very misty this morning so I went and got lost! I knew vaguely the direction and ended up eventually where I wanted to be.
i began a climb andLaura announced I was 5 minutes into the run. Yes that's right friends, I had been running for less then 5 minutes and I managed to get lost - oh the shame.
So i ran on for another minute or so, and the MP3 stopped again. Now last time I was able to get it started from where it stopped, but not this time. Oh no Laura was backe welcoming me to week 7 and telling me I needed to the other 6 weeks.
Soi I scrolled through until Laura said finve minutes and so I probably inadverted ly gained another minute or so. So my 25 minutes turned into about 26 minutes!
The rest of the run was a bit uneventful, apart from the fact that I was a minute faster to all my markers.
So the upshot of my MP3 playing up is I ran for an extra minute or so, so I can run 26 minutes easy with a final sprint as well, so bring on week 8!
I am running my race on Saturday, and I think I am ready to rock and roll. I am running for the British Heart Foundation as I recently lost my uncle to heart disease and my dad is a member of the zipper club. So things don't look great for my future, which is why I am running and doing as much as I can because I don't want to miss out on the baby b3ans.
Soi if you have been enjoying the blogs, how about giving a couple of pennies to a good cause - oh what a self promotionist I am.
