well I almost finished my monthly recap but then work got stressful and I was desperate to get out to go to the circus…. So just to make sure I don’t fail at Juneathon on Day 3, here is a quick blog!
Today’s exercise was a “test” swim involving a warm-up, 4x 50m building in speed, 400m time trial and then a 200m time trial. I felt like I was going to be sick at the end of each of the time trials and the fastest 50m
BUT I managed pretty ginormous PBs of 7:18 for the 400m compared to 7:55 last time, and 3:36 for the 200m – about 20 seconds faster than my previous fastest time this year. I was so happy! Have absolutely no idea how I managed it and I swear my non-sprinting pace is still as slow as ever but never mind.
In other news, it was National Running Day in the U.S. today. I’m not American and I didn’t run today but why not join in?!
I run because…. It’s fun and it is peaceful. If I’m running fast, I feel strong and powerful. If I’m running slow, I’m enjoying the views and just relaxed.
I started running because…. I wanted to be able to finish a triathlon!
When I don’t run….. To be honest I’m totally fine if I’m working hard, or ill, or
One thing running has taught me is… I am persistent. I can keep going and I won’t give up. And it has taught me that I enjoy something I never thought I would… Running for hours all by myself!
My favourite kind of run is… A long slow run on beautiful trails, with good company.
