I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Friday Morning Fog Run Selfies!

… not only foggy, humid. Was welcomed as well … too many cold morning runs lately. Felt so good stepping out the front door, and not feeling a chill. Happy Friday y’all!

it’s not the heat, it’s the stupidity!!

… really don’t know what I was thinking these last couple of days?! Yesterday was in the 40s, and in the 30s as I awoke … yet, I still run, and STILL KILL IT!! A 17:52 4K in this energy-sapping humidity, I’ll happily take that time till the cows come home!!

Plus, Tiff K & I sucked it up for these couple of Indian Summer days, absolutely REFUSING to turn on the A/C … unlike our zealot A/C using/loving next door neighbours who have that fecking thing cranked all seasons, sans one. I know, MORE stupidity,eh, lol?!

and, only 40 seconds off my PR; CRAZY EH?

4K PR … + 1mile PR!!

Wow, I amazed myself. Lord knows I needed a great day, my endurance and pace have been suffering lately. And my 4K is tough for me to improve upon, since my old time was fast, but I bettered it by 5 seconds. AND THEN, fifteen minutes later … I surprised myself lowering my mile to 6:31 (an 8 second improvement). I still can’t believe I had enough left in the tank after those grueling, energy sapping four kilometers?! Oh, and am also surprised since it’s very humid (feels like 30°), and the air feels so thick, making breathing difficult. Like I said, wow … chuffed again!

17:21 4K

hot & humid hump day run!!

… felt like 32°, actually was that hot/muggy throughout the night, we didn’t get any relief. At that point breathing becomes increasing difficult, let alone running. But off I went, and you know at times when you start your run, you’re still unsure how you feel? Today was one of those days. I felt OK after 5 minutes, and pushed hard during the next 5 minutes … it was after my 10 minute distance cue, I knew I felt strong, and that I’d try hard for a fast 4K time. And I did well! My second fastest time ever, missed my PR by 13 seconds … a sub eighteen minute clocking … also, I achieved a PR for min/km pace – 4:16 … AND, each successive kilometer was faster … I quickened my pace from start to finish. All in all, a solid run, a positive run! Oh, plus my run home – my second 4K was no slouch either, was a good run as well!

17:58 – considering the conditions; quite pleased
