This was one of the most difficult runs I have done. I started off ok but I was running one of my routes in reverse which turned out to be uphill most of the way! I was puffed out after a couple of miles and then the monkey and the rest of its family jumped on my back and started to get me down with all their negativity. Half way through, I was forced to walk for a couple of hundred yards due to very large deep muddy puddles. I was grateful for this as it allowed me to get my breath back and summoning up all my strength I finally dumped the monkeys!!! But by this time I was running on empty and really flagging but my OH (who was on his bike, alright for some) gave me lot of encouragement so I dug deep and managed not ony to finish but to finish running with a sprint! 4miles in 42mins 37secs.
I have no idea what was wrong with me this morning, but one thing is for certain I dont like monkeys any more lol.
