Firstly – let me show you my medal as well as what I looked like in Pinetown – about 22km’s into the run. It seems although I’m a really fresh looking, happy runner. Spectators on the road even commented on it – telling me I’m looking fresh and not even sweating – well look are deceiving. Ohh by the way – I’m the one with the red vest on the pavement, in case you were wondering! 🙂
And then people keep on asking me how I feel. On Monday after Comrades Hubby and myself actually went for a long walk on the promenade in Durban – and I was fine, my fat rolls on my waist was a bit sore but I was walking normally. The worst of my injuries seems to be my soft palette, it was feeling raw and sore, anything I ate or drank or sucking on a straw was really bad. Then sitting in the car for 6 hours on Monday afternoon did make me stiff and then sleeping for 8 hours, so I was stiff on Tuesday but after about 5 minutes of walking around I would be fine again.
And then on Friday afternoon the tiredness hit me like a ton of bricks – I was in a restaurant and all of a sudden I could feel myself droop and getting more and more tired. So I had a lot of snoozes under the blanket on the couch over the weekend and I must be honest I feel absolutely 100% now.
I was actually thinking of going for a run yesterday but I know that will be foolhardy.
Running Comrades does get easier the more you do it…
And then onto other stuff.
For you bookworms – have you looked at the website called bookbub – it gives you the latest deals on cheap or free books on Amazon – obviously not the best sellers but nice little filler books between the intellectual tomes that I submit myself to every now and again.
I just read a BBM, I’ve send my mom – goodness autocorrect does teach you to read between the lines. And why do we send each other BBM’s if we both have IPhones?
Zoe is in the midst of tests – we got two back and she didn’t do too badly – if I can just get her to concentrate more – she make such silly mistakes. But hopefully that will sort itself out later on.
Our phonelines were suspended by Telkom on Monday morning – gosh what a mission to get it back to work. I under estimated our actual cost and didn’t pay enough. Kind of a catch 22 situation – phones not working so I can’t do an EFT because the lines are down so they can’t put our service back… At least that has now been sorted.
Have a wonderful day – better get some work done now…
