Yes. What a challenge – I am back on track. Not exactly where I want to be but happy with the way the training is going so far. I have skipped so many training runs. Blame it on the cold weather. My morning runs seemed to have become something of a past life! HELP!
The Vodacom race was challenging, but I was on home ground and really confident and have been looking forward to this race for months! I did my first 5k here a year ago and look at me now, still thriving with passion. I cannot believe I have persist…even training for fo a 50k ultra-marathon race. I am so proud of myself. Just need to stay focus now – I am starting to get a bit intimidated by the distance from my next big race (I have not trained as hard as I should have!). I completely get it now when people say, running a 50k is not hard, but training for a 50k is….
My time for the vodacom was 2:37 – would have wanted to do a PB, but the HILLS of Midrand did not want that for me :-). Next time. I did the first 5km in 36:36, which I am extremely happy as the first stretch was not too easy.
All in all…Well done!
