W8 is done!! I never thought I'd say that but roll on W9. I ran to my own music today & timed myself. I include my warm up walk in my time but not my cool down, I don't why it just works for me, so I covered a distance of 4.67k - so tantalizingly close to this 5k! I ran to my own music which seemed to encourage me to up the pace. My left leg was so tight though so I had to have a stretch half way through which meant there was a slight dip in performance *groans*. No PB's beaten but I enjoyed the run even if my poor Labrador was too poorly to run. I kind of missed him
It was roasting when I was running and I was drenched in sweat with my hair, which is curly anyway, frizzed up from my red face & scalp. The idea of this run was to end at the local supermarket to buy a birthday card & some alcohol for said birthday. Reached the supermarket in 27 minutes (1 minute off!!), considered doing a lap of car park to reach 28 minutes but I thought might weird out customers so grabbed my trolley and wandered round the shop.I got ID'd (again) at the till (I'm 25!!) and showed my ID but I don't think the lady could reconcile the image on my driving licence, which is in black & white now, with this red faced person, covered in frizz. I mean I knew I didn't look good but I didn't think I looked that bad! Got home and I spoke to my OH. I asked if I should dare look in the mirror and he tried to be tactful ... off to the mirror I went then quickly ran the shower to tame hair and cool down. Jogging is not a sport that can be done glamorously, at least not by me!!
