So warming up I sorted my game plan. I would do the podcast, pace myself well and not try to push myself too unreasonably. Aim..to hit our turn around point at roughly half time.. I knew If I did this I would be doing amazingly well. But alas it was not quiet to be, I hit half way with the turn in my sight but non the less I kept up till I got there...Touched and returned back towards home. By now my mouth was dry as And I hate drinking a shitload of water on a long run..(its sloshes and makes me feel sick), My Last 5 min run...was HELL. Im running along this dark street...giving myself a verbal pep talk..."Come on Mel...Nearly there...you can do It Mel...Push through it..." Rinse and repeat. It would have sounded mad to anyone crazy enough to listen to me. I hit the end of my cool down for the podcast just around the corner from home. Slipped on some random music ( It happened to be Stacey's Mom) And paced myself out the last 900m home. I hit the front step as it ended. So I did a pb! 4.43k in 32 mins(podcast time) and "Stacey's Mom"(3:16 min)....For an official time of 35:16. ( dumb arse me has logged it as 36:16 on Daily mile) knocking over 6 mins off my time from the IGA fun run less than a month ago!!!!
To mark the occassion...I took a photo.. ;)
