i bit the bullet so to speak, was sitting looking out at the rain feeling really disappointed, really wanted to challenge myself today. so it seemed to clear off a little so high viz on, off i went. did my 5 min warm up walk and off i went, within 5 mins the heavens opened, but i said to myself, even if i turn back i am still going to get soaked through, so i ploughed on, through puddles upon puddles, multi-splashed by trucks, head down on i ran! never realised there were so many inclines on my route, but i took them on and conquered them 1 by 1, and finally laura said just 60 seconds left. my legs were like lead, and the rain was pouring off me, i must have look a mess as my neighbour passed me by in a car, reversed and asked me if i was ok and needed a lift home!! my voice barely audible i whispered no thanks, im fine.. nearly done. the route is just over 6k, so walked a little longer than the podcast,
so i did it!! i took on the hills accompanied by the rain!! by the time i got home i looked like i had being running through fields i was so dirty ( a lot of my route is country roads and very muddy)
Feeling very very very proud of myself right now
this is a route that i would have walked lots of times.. never in my wildest dreams did i think id ever run it.
sorry for long rant, but im home alone and have no one to rant to!!
thanks for all your support
