The sparkly headband shopping wasn't my idea!! Infact I seem to remember it was your idea! And your idea to decide on a coffee at Costa the other side of town.. and then remember the final sparkey headband shop..back over where we were before the coffee...! Grrr!
I have to admit the pub was the sole reason me and Mr RRR agreed to run however. Although on the way back we decided to go seperatly as you were running so slowly, we didn't want you to get out of breath behind us.... so we ACTUALLY went 5miles round.. just for you to save face... and beat you to the Black Horse meeting point. AND leaving the pub we picked up a drunken runner too... although she only ran for under a minute before deciding actually it was more fun in the pub, swearing as she tripped over the kerb and back tracked. AND there was no vomit on our route.
I would prove it to you that we ran much further and faster than you.. sadly my Garmin broke. As did Mr RRRs.
Yay well done, thats fab!! Good for you!! Aim for whatever you like!!! The sky is your limit My first goal was to do 5K in under 30mins and then it was 10K in under an hour. Now its to do 10K in under 50mins.. and 5K in 25mins... Maybe a goal for you would be to simply run 10K (build up slowly to avoid injury) and take the time from that and work on that? Or you could try doin the exact same route next weekend and seeing if you can do it slightly quicker? How did you find it?
I get this sometimes - its called the "zombie run" as you shuffle with your butt cheeks clasped as you look for somewhere suitable.. I learnt the hard way and ALWAYS take some loo roll with me now.... sorry... TMI
As for preventing it - no idea. Sometimes it just seems to happen!
