Don't quite know where to begin with this one?
When I woke up this morning it was my intention to run a Half Marathon distance. I had bought a couple of SIS Gels and wanted to try them out because I'd never had them before. So, 1 x pineapple gel in my running belt and off I went.
Any route I take from home in most directions is up hill, so I just headed for the hills. When I stopped for a moment to catch my breath, I looked at my phone to see how far I'd run.... mmmmm? 19.3k!
OK! So I've got a couple of options...
1. Turn around and go back the way I came? 🤣
2. Carry on a bit more up the hill and run a different route back? 🙄
I think you can guess that I took option 2!🤣
A few more kilometers later I stopped and had the gel 😋 It wasn't unpleasant, it was easy to swallow, but it took me nearly 10 minutes to down it! But it was a lovely 10 minutes to just stop and look around 🌼🌳🌸
Psychologically, I think the gel worked, as it gave me the confidence to carry on with the next half of the run. Also most of this part of the run was down hill! 😍
I was shattered at the end. In fact, quite delerious! 🥴 But I've eaten and have been sat in the bath for over an hour! 🛀☺️
I'M OVER THE MOON 🙃🌛🤸🏼♀️ This would not have happened if it wasn't for lockdown! 🌈
Hope everyone is well whether you're up and running or taking it easy on the couch. 🏃🏿🏃🏼♀️❤️
