I made it to Spring into Shape #2 with time to spare yesterday morning. Had to laugh when I was in toilet queue because there were about 6 womens toilets all in a row but only 1 being used 😯 I really wanted to investigate and find out what was wrong with the 5 not being used but I didn’t want to lose my place!!
Caught up with Andrew and had a quick chat and then met Kathy but only for a very brief moment as out race was about to start. I lost you Kathy when placing myself at start and I did look out for you post race but didn’t see you 😦 Hopefully next time around we can have a longer chat 🙂
Everything felt good while running, not a niggle in sight. Have to say though I hate that stretch along Batman Avenue 😡 When I was running through my first lap it was nice to see Andrew and Tigerboy cheering on the sidelines. I still felt really good and it wasn’t until about the 6km mark when I felt as though I was running out of steam and had to slow my pace a little. I always seem to conk out when there is about 2kms to go whether it be a 8km or a 10km. Anyway I managed to catch my breath again and felt really quite good when I finished. My official time was 50:29 which was I was happy with as I thought it was around 51:30 mark. It was such a glorious morning and I was really grateful to be able to be out there. Post run I had a leisurely wander around but couldn’t see anyone in sight, not even any coolrunners, so I went home to relieve hubby from Rugrat duty.
My next race is going to be the 10km Olympic Dream on the 25th November. I really need to work on my pacing and I am hoping to improve my 10km time. I would like to do it in about 62min, probably abit ambitious but something to aim for. I have 6 weeks to work on this cardio of mine and get it back in to ship shape, aahhh, the story of my running life 😆
