shades - my legs are feeling much better thanks. Ready for tomorrow. It should be good running as the weather has been dry the past few days so not too much mud I think.
My 6 yr old had his school fun run and he decided to enter the 5 k event. There was a 1k option too..bless him, he didn't quite realise how far 5 k was..we started out and ran the first half lap near the back of the pack but he plodded on, walking occasionally then running again..he wanted to start the first full lap and and insisted he was ok. Halfway round I could see sweat pouring down his face and he was very red.. He completed the lap and I could see He had reached his limit and couldn't carry on but he did 1.5 miles.. My other half could see I wanted to try catch the leaders so I carried on and ran at my pace. I couldn't catch them as they had lapped us once already but I managed to still finish in 26 min. I wasn't worried about the medal but made sure my little one got one for his effort. Proud of him..
Tomorrow is the north downs run and I'm quite looking forward to it. Will be a change doing a trail run with lots of hills..not expecting a fast time but will do what I do best and enjoy it.
