anyway...I did it! i finished my longest race to date.. it was 14.38km :)
not my best race, since my back has been super sore lately, my physio thinks i may have bulged a disk..so i hope he is not reading...(sorry john i had to run)
So ill re cap the day from the start shall i?
the best thing about this race was it didnt start till 9.15am so i didnt have to wake up super early..
i woke up at 6.30 and had the usal breakfast, pot of green tea
and oats with blueberries
we both had had bad luck with our health in the past 2 weeks and werent 100%, the poor thing had been in hospital 3 times in the last week! So our plan was to take it slow, walk when we needed to walk.
the race wouldnt have been a race without pre race poses!
we were also please that even when walking we overtook people!
i ran with steph all the way untill the last drink stop where i lost her, so i did the last 3km alone...that was ok.
i crossed the finish line in under 2 hrs, i wasnt impressed at all with my time but given my back i did quite well i suppose.. it held up well and only really started to hurt badly towards the end.. a week of rest definately helped. the offical times come out tomorrow so ill let you all know then, i suspect it was about 1hour 46mins or something..
oh and i just had to show you this little guy..
during the most boring informatics class today, i turned around to look out the window and this little guy was staring at me..hello cocky!
ok enough from this crazy bird crippled lady xo
