a new goal?

After another early night yesterday, I woke up this morning feeling much happier than I did when I went to bed yesterday. And my body was feeling well rested too. So much so, that I thought I may as well get today’s run done whilst it was still fairly cool and I was in the mood. As an added incentive, I thought I’d tackle the Field Of Cows again. This time I’d see if I could outwit them – if they were hanging around the gate waiting for me the other evening, surely I would have the element of surprise this time by running through the field in the morning. I set off ensuring that I wasn’t wearing anything remotely red. It was still a hot and sweaty run (I’ve noticed a strange phenomena this Juneathon… my elbows drip sweat when I run. I swear I’ve never had this before – I shall continue to monitor this) and by the time I got to the Field Of Cows, they looked beaten by the heat too. All sat down at one side of the field, they lazily watched me plod past. Over the railway line and I was on my way back home. The legs are still harbouring all manner of twinges and aches but they don’t seem to be getting any worse so I’ll take that as a positive.

7.11kms was run today and as I walked back to the house I was doing a little bit of mental arithmetic. I have 5 days left of Juneathon, so far I have run 166.43kms. If I can just run the equivalent of 6.72kms over the next few days, I will have completed 200kms running in a month.

Hmmmm…

Juneathon so far: Run – 166.43kms / Cycle – 116.34kms

    200km pretty amazing, sweating elbows interesting with me it’s my face, I look like I have a shower hose attatched to my forehead! Just reading this while post lunch slobbing pondering a run, guess I’ll have to get out there now and see what my elbows do.

    Don’t get me wrong – I don’t sweat exclusively from my elbows – that’d be plain weird!! I just noticed that it happens and I’d never noticed it before. Enjoy your run…

    200kms is brilliant. The cows should shudder in fear of you with that kind of mileage.

    Cows, sweaty elbows, your day to day challenges are curious! I notice the first drops are at my elbows also – I like to think I glow after my runs, but fear I look like I have been through a light shower. Very pleasant for a girl. Why can’t I just ‘glow’? Very impressed with your clocked km’s!

    Thanks Hotshoeshuffle & Breandán. I was just planning to run each day and get through to the end of the month but 200km is too good a target to miss. I hope I can make it, the legs are really beginning to ache now. Just 4 more days to go!!!!
