So Tuesday I ran a personal best on a 21 – 1:57.
Ran 21 on Saturday – not going out hard – we kept on telling ourselves we are doing a slow training run – yes that is me and running husband Andy. We finished in 2:05 and the course was 500m’s long.
And then yesterday morning another 21 – weather conditions were miserable – cold, wet and windy. At the start Andy and myself kept telling ourselves – we are not racing, it is a training run, we are going slowly. Hahahahah – we started to run like crazy people and finished in a time of 1:54!!!! On tired legs.
Two personal bests in one week! I honestly do not know how and why this is happening now – it can’t be just the weightloss. It must be more than physical – I’m just amazed at how I’m running at the moment – there is a sense of “looseness” and relaxation and freedom that I can’t really describe.
So I have now decided that I’m going to go to Two Oceans and try my utmost to run a sub 6 there – I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to do it BUT I can only try.
And then onto something really different. I sometimes think that people have an extreme mental disconnect when they see me and when they hear me talk and what can come out of my mouth.
I suppose I look like the typical dumb blond – blond hair, blue eyes and let’s be honest a body that is not too shabby – so I’m normally judged on that BUT then I open my mouth and out come things that doesn’t belong in a dumb blond’s head.
On Saturday people came to look at the house and I could hear they wanted to convert part of the house into a granny flat and before I could stop myself I jumped into the conversation with prices of getting things done, plans on how do to it and locations of water pipes and electricity. I could actually see these people just getting more and more confused with the knowledge I have about something that is supposed to be in the male realm of things.
Well hold thumbs – they came back for a second look yesterday so hopefully all my suggestions and enthusiasm will pay off.
Have a wonderful week my blog friends!
