Just a quick update to let you know that another 'fun' run has come and gone, and I've survived.
Despite the rest of the UK sweltering from heatwave conditions, and a forecast for fine weather up here, Inverness turned on a typically dreary and misty day. You might say perfect for running. You might.
As my previous post indicated I held no great hope for my time for this 5k. Like I said, I was happy to just finish. And I did it comfortably under 30 minutes and was pretty fresh at the end. If I had have known how fresh I might have pushed a little harder to get my time down, but I did want to make sure I made it to the end in one go and in one piece.
|I totally destroyed that little kid in the pink.|
I'm pretty sure I was spot on 28 minutes. I was about fifteen seconds out from the line when the gun went off, and the clock said 28:15 as I crossed the line. My Runkeeper™app didn't do me any favours - it took almost a minute for me to press 'completed' with my phone holder all wet from the mist.
As I crossed the line I was 'awarded' another medallion to add to my collection:
|The award that says 'Everyone's a WINNER!'|
I also got a showbag with a few random goodies and a dinky little t-shirt with a picture of the Loch Ness Monster on it.
All in all I'm considering the whole excursion a moderate success.
I promise another update soon.
