15k!

I wasn't feeling like doing a long run this morning. It was warm, I was tired and I had set out late but somewhere between 5 and 10k I decided I would aim to hit 15k as my target run and so I was left running in circles around Blenheim trying to reach that magical number 15! I was slow but I am buzzing. There was even a pure white feather along my route; a gentle sign of my motivation. ♡ #Iran15k! #Runbecauseican #Run #Chasingdistancenotspeed #chasethehigh #Halfmarathon #Training #Mcmillan #Iwilldothis!

Wow, where did that come from Claire?? 💪

Excellent run in these conditions, I’ve been feeling uncomfortably sticky doing nothing this morning, which makes your run even more impressive 🤗

You’ll crack the HM no problem 😎

Lol thanxs. I kept to the shade in Blenheim and once I reached a certain heat it just seemed I couldn't get any hotter! I sweat loads even when it's normal temperature too though! I've struggled to get out for the longer runs with a teething baby so I figured as I was out and free to rub i should run! 30th September seems awful close now! I want to up my time.... I'd quite like to run the H.M in hours but with hills too I'm guessing a slow and steady 2and half will be ok. 😊🤞

My HM is Sept 9th and you’re further up the road than me. It’s not so much the sweating that bothers me, the hot weather saps the energy out of me 😰....well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it lol

Thank you. I had run 13.5 a few weeks back so I just thought I'd go for it.
