The Pace Run
Ok, so Thursday marked my pace run. I was still mentally and physically exhausted from the presentation. Anxiety can be a draining thing, so after my 13.5hr shift off I went.
“lets try a different route, mix it up a bit
Lesson learned, I ain’t doing it again. Ow ow ow. It hurt. I had the pace notifications set for every 0.25km. It is really beneficial to keep track of your pace. It was hot, I was heavy and it was 21:30…nearly bedtime. Anyway:
So, I did it, by 4 seconds. Disappointed not to be under 32mins but still, I achieved what I’d set out to and that was good enough!
The Endurance Run
Picture the scene, it’s 25 degrees outside, the sun is blazing and here I was off to run 12k. My farthest ever.
I was so slow, the heat was killing me.
It took me 40 minutes to complete 5k, my slowest ever.
There were times during it when I though “I can’t do this”
On and on and on I went.
I did it, 12K! Eventually. Damn heat buggering up my training. Even though I was slow, I only stopped once. I stopped to take this:
Here we are post 12k!
I’m not going to be disheartened by my time. Running in heat means running slower. This info on how to run in hot weather here
The endurance run on Friday instead of Saturday meant that it was barbecue day on Saturday!
And sure, I may as well crack it open for breakfast! It would be rude not to!
happy running people
