I am flying in the clouds tonight! I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive about that run tonight and was getting that oh so gnawing anxiety just beforehand. I really need to believe in myself more! So off we go with the Baltic wind in my face......OMG its freezing....! Then 4 mins in another runner coming towards me...oh no...then, did he really give me a thumps up? 6 minutes in, and a nice rhythm coming....hmmm, nice...then the corner that I hate because its up a bit of an incline....and my app says " Time 12 minutes and 35 seconds, distance 1.6km"...Ehhh? What? My last time was around 13.5 at this distance...on up the little hill, then more runners...head up girl, they smile....good. Round the bend starting for home again, and still feeling good, then STITCH. Arghhhh. Never had one yet. It was killing me....keep going....past the usual STOP point...havent reached 30 mins yet. Stitch gone, feels nice, keep going, turn round for home, slow down. Stop the app. Time 31 mins, distance 4.12km!!!! Woo hoo!
