So this is my 2nd virtual 10 miler, the first being run at a relaxed bimble a couple of weeks ago. That one was to fulfil my promise to run 10 miles on my favourite local running spot, Felton Common. Job done, and my time was 2:16:36.
Today I was in two minds whether to head into town and run part of my HM route around Bristol, but because the weather was glorious I figured it would be too busy, so I headed for the towpath. Plus it meant Flossie could come. 🥰🐾
Got there at around 8am. Mistake, should have made it 7am, as it was already warm - but mostly it was the humidity. 100% according to Strava, and I can believe it! 🥵 Still, it’s a nice route and a fair amount of it is shaded, but the parts which aren’t have you running directly into the sun. ☀️ No worries, just trudged on, and my time was holding up ok. I had some jelly babies to fuel me, plus two small bottles of water, one with electrolytes, and boy I needed those. I did wilt a bit at 15k so I gave myself a talking to and came in at 2:11:08, which apparently is my 2nd fastest 10 miles. 😀
Home for post-run yoga and 2 large banana sandwiches, one of my favourite things! 🍌
May I have my WooHoo please roseabi? 😀🙏🏻
