Mini Race Day – Race for Life, Aintree – Week 4

Aloha!

Despite the absolutely miserable weather in the UK on Friday, I did my best run yet. I got through seven miles, and it was done easily. I felt like I could have ran for MUCH longer, but I know at what time the hot water in the tank goes cold so compromised my run for a hot shower. I normally don’t enjoy running in the rain and was tempted to bin it for the day, but I’m incredibly happy I made the choice to man up and go. Armed with my rain jacket I managed to complete 11km (because it sounds better than 7 miles 🙂 ).

So I did Race for Life today, a 5km charity event in the UK that raises money for cancer research. It was not on my schedule because I was taking someone else’s place who couldn’t do it. I think it went well, I raised around £20 for charity on short notice and managed a 28:04, so three miles in that time is something I’m happy with!

Incidentally, if you want to sponsor me a pound, text ‘LIKE69 £1’ to 70070 or visit here http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/sponsormybreasts . Muchas love.

So to recap, I’ve completed my training plan for another week which really does make me think I may well be able to keep it up. Signing off.
