omg. i finally turned up for an event and finished it. it is a fucking miracle. i did change the distance from the longest to the shortest but who cares. and i wasnt dead fucking last either. close but i didnt get that award. i did think i was going to throw up when i crossed the finish line though. that would have been embarrassing.
this trail run was awesome but very painful. i am sure it only ever went up the mountain and we never came back down. i can walk today but it is very painful after i havent moved for awhile. but it feels great. i am alive.
i did the 7 km event. it had 259m of elevation gain. whatever that really means other than the graph looks awesome. it took me over an hour but keep in mind i havent run anywhere in months nor have i even walked the dog. the greatest distance has been from the carpark to the beach and back. maybe a short walk along the beach. i am so out of practice i forgot to turn my garmin off when i finished.
so now i am all keen as mustard to sign up for more events but i have rules. i can only enter if i train so i must leave the signing up to the very latest possible time and i will just have to suffer fomo. i now have to get my legs back to normal as soon as possible.
