WEEK 6/RUN 3 - FOREST BATHING β€’ I’ve always wanted to race at @westonbirtarb, like since forever πŸ‚ Westonbirt means a lot to me as my Granny and Grandpa have memorial trees there πŸ’œπŸŒ³ Circumstances have never led to it until waaaaay back in spring when the @forestryengland race was still available πŸ™‚ I’m glad we signed up when we did as when it was more widely advertised it sold out so quickly! It was an odd start time, 4pm. I know why though because it’s such a huge attraction and it would be mad to run it in the morning. I thought I’d nailed nutrition but I ended up being quite unwell afterwards. I don’t know if it was the heat, that I’d pushed it or the times of my food 🀒 But I managed it in 1:03:11 (Garmin time) and I did a mile either side (went and saw the trees πŸ’œ) so it ended up being an 8 mile tempo runπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Anyway I survived, and it’s my last race until @virginsport Oxford Half. I think I have one last very long run next week and then it’s all the waiting game. I won’t lie, I’m SO nervous, every time I’m out running I think β€œshit how am I gonna run 13 miles” but then I remember my training and all the effort I’ve put in since the beginning of 2019 πŸ’ͺ I’m almost at 500 miles for the year. I reckon I can get 700 by Christmas at this rate! So I’m going to trust in the process and get myself to that start line in a month πŸ™‚ Are you training for anything big this autumn? #misspondruns

Who knew I'd enjoy a 10k so much.
We played with 7 dogs.
We did a few lunges and some football side steps to warm up.
We attempted singing a song, but it made me wee myself.
We learnt about different trees... we ran past so many Larches.
We made sure the golf buggy didn't catch us.
We whoo-whooed for every single sign that we passed.
Basically, all the normal things that would've happened without the running/sports bra thing.
We just need to learn how to do that for 20 more miles. 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
