Some one up there definitely wasn't listening to my prayers as I begged for cool drizzly weather NOT 25C and sunny!! The heat really got to me and although I vowed I wouldn't walk at all there was a stretch of road that was just airless - hot and no breeze or shade whatsoever. I walked twice in the end very briefly just to get enough breath to carry on. My target was 35 - 40 mins and I finished in 38.02 (chip & pin timing) so got there despite the weather. Was surprised when I looked at the results to find I was the only female over 60 competing! I started off running to 5k+ Stepping Stones podcast so Laura could keep a check on me but somehow I lost her when trying to increase the volume - senior moment - so carried on alone (apart from the other couple of hundred runners!) Here's to the next one!
