On a HIGH!!

Hey all,Just coming on here for a bit of a brag!I completed the final 8km run for the Spring into Shape Series this morning.

I have done 2 other runs- the first one I completed in 1:06:34,

the 2nd I did the 4km (due to having to be somewhere) in 29:50

And this morning I completed the 8km course in 1:00:35 !!! I have shaved off more than 6 minutes with 3 months of (not even full on) training!!

And, the think I am even happier about is that I jogged the WHOLE 8k!! Only walking a couple of steps to have a decent drink at the drink station! That is the first time I have achieved something like this... I'm on such a high!!

For the first time my brain wasn't saying STOP STOP STOP!!! It was saying YOU CAN DO IT, YOU RAN UP A BIG HILL 2 DAYS AGO, YOU CAN DO IT NOW- ONLY A FEW KS TO GO, ONLY ONE K TO GO, ONLY A HUNDRED METRES TO GO, THERES JOHN, SMILE FOR THE CAMERA! YOU'VE DONE IT , YOU RAN IT, YES! YOU'RE UNREAL!!

It's amazing how different things can be when you're in a good frame of mind...

7 of you love me enough to comment...:
