Tonight was the Zoo Run… one of my favourite ever fun runs cos you get to run around the zoo. What better spectators/cheer squad than the giraffes and monkeys?
Not such a good time for me. My PB for 8 kms is just under 50 minutes. Tonight I ran it in around 56 minutes. I ran about 1.5 kms then some girl stopped dead in front of me and I swerved to miss her and ended up coming a cropper on the gravel. No damage done though and lots of nice people stopping to see if I was okay.
That kind of stopped my running momentum for awhile then I got back into it.
Just before the 4 km mark, my energy levels were almost non-existent but some little red headed kid decided to race me up the outside of the zoo (he was watching not running). I’m not being beaten by a 4 year old red head!
Got around the zoo a second time, pushing myself to keep going cos I’m so unfit atm. Out the zoo gates and realised I had no idea where the finish line was! One of the marshalls pointed me in the right direction then the girl beside me decided it was a race to the finish line. I got confused and she beat me but it was fun.
After that I had to head to the gym for a shower. Our hot water stopped working. Got home and the landlord had been over to fix it! OMG. Yes, my dodgy landlord fixed something… and he was totally not a dick for once!
