The week started with a great 6 miles in the company of #fordyruns #BabooRunning on a Sunday morning around Cardiff. It was great fun to be able to run with some other people, and a plus we did a pretty good time.
I decided after this to up my mileage and completed my first 10 mile run/walk, although it was mainly running. After I finished and for most of the next day I felt great and managed with my strengthening exercises and stretches kept everything moving.
I entered the officialVirtual London marathon - I know I am part of the event anyway with Kerrie, but it feels good to be part of this as well.
Thursday was an interesting day, my run started out in a light drizzle, and my plan was to do around 8.5 miles. I chose a nice route and was happily plodding my way around listneing to David Tennant on a podcast.
The weather had other ideas.
Gradually the rain got heavier and much much colder.
Eventually after 4 miles I admitted defeat and called for back up.
Disappointed that I had to give up, but I was shivering and soaked through.
Not defeated though the next morning I git back at it and did the route again (in reverese) and this time did the whole 8.5.
Delighted that with todays 3.5 miles I have done another 40 miles this week, and completed over 400 as part of my challenge. And as a bonus my August 'Through the Seasons' medal arrived, and links perfectly with July.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
