There is a lot to be said for the running community & friendships you make along the way. All week I was not looking forward to increasing the distance & running 16miles today - still sore from my 800’ track session mid week but knowing I have only 6 more long run opportunities left before #brightonmarathon2020 my inspirational route planning wonder woman friend @runcakerelax got me there. ⭐️💕All I had to do was show up right??!! 🖐🏼 at 7am! “Hi hun I made it.. where are you taking me?”🎉 Well we arrived at Bromley parkrun for miles 10,11 and 12 (yep 2hours of running already under our feet) & I can honestly say if it wasn’t for the friendly, encouraging mass crowds of people at @parkrun I would NOT of been able to carry on for another 4 today!
Thank you @joanne.oconnell.370 for talking to me all the way round it, it was invaluable to me😄
They say it gets easier, but I do not remember it hurting this much before.. not ever!! Oh right yes that’s the adrenaline.. it makes you forget! 🤦🏼♀️Otherwise I am pretty sure I wouldn’t have signed up to 2 more. Here I am finished, looking & feeling pretty broken by 10am 🥴 - 7 days ago
