So many people did so many great things at the SMH Half Marathon this morning. Me? I discovered my pink jacket has reflective bits, and managed to run my 7km and make the relay transition area in time for my relay partner to be able to run. I was really anxious about that pre-run. Under normal conditions, that would have been more than achievable with time to spare. Sporting the itb injury AND banging my knee on furniture this week, causing a fair bit of pain, it was getting doubtful. In the end, I was really happy with my time, given the forced walk intervals. I don’t know why I didn’t sign up for the half marathon (the decision not to do it was made back in January) but next year I will do it. I have studied the map very carefully, and apart from one or two small sections, I run these routes allll the time. Just need to combine them into one long run. That would be fun!!
My knee has reacted exactly as the physio said it would. Hurt during the run, and swollen after. Icing it all day and it’s a bit better now. Now onto the next challenge….
