Just come in from a 9.4m run: 1:34:42 at 10:04/m
This may sound strange, but I got a bit emotional at mile 6. My previous best was 6.5 miles.
'Olympians' by F**k Buttons came on my headphones at mile 6 and I just went for it. If you're unfamiliar with the track, I believe it was used as part of the Olympic opening ceremony.
I now think that I'm in good shape for my half marathon in 3 weeks.
Yeah, I've always been a fan. I'm from Wrexham so it's kinda localish.
Really looking forward to it now, maybe not the infamous North Wales climate...
Anyone else entered this?
This'll be my first ever proper race and I'm a bit nervous. Mainly about actually finished the bloody thing...
Anyway, as I'm a running n00b can anyone tell me when I should expect a race/information pack for events? Less than a month to go and still not got mine...
I have tried contacts before, a few years ago. Didn't take to them, the main reason being that I could feel the slightest breeze on my eye as if it were a gale force and I'm worried that'd be too annoying/distracting/uncomfortable to run with.
Maybe I'll give a pack of disposable ones a go...
I think I'll pop in and have them checked. I'll chat to them about getting my old pair re-glazed too while I'm there.
I might invest in a band thing for extra saftey.
