Eeeep only 8 hours to go! I’m well nervous. Sorry stolen this from you Ian :D
Phew. Never eating a doughnut ever again.
Almost ready for the #doughnutdash. I’m nervous! I had a dream this morning that I was running it, but I was an hour late showing up, it was pouring with rain, mud and puddles everywhere. I did my first km, then they gave me this HUGE donut the size of my head. When I actually woke up I had a baad stomach ache, still got it. Running in an hour. Eep! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ‘Ž
This pomegranate flavoured water is so nice. Needed something to get me off the cola! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘
๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘
Can’t quite understand this… It’s shorts… With a skirt over it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I don’t get it! ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž
Only went to town to hunt down a peanut butter chocolate cupcake. Cupcakes were sold out, but I ended up spending loads of money on other stuff… Whoops… I did get the headtorch I needed though! But definitely didn’t need a new gym top.. Nor Modern Family.. (even though it’s incredible ๐Ÿ’œ). I did find Reece’s goodies ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

OCR - so not ready!

Eep I’m really nervous, I’ve got my first proper run tomorrow! I completed the Doughnut Dash last weekend which was really surprisingly tough (never eating and running ever again), and I started the year with the Alton Water Run and the Colour Run, but those were all little 5km ones that I took relatively easily.

Tomorrow I take on my first muddy obstacle race/OCR and I’m bricking it! I’m doing the Nuclear Blackout, and to make matters harder, it’s at night. I’ve got my head torch ready. I’ve even bought some trail running shoes so I can have a bit of a chance at gripping in the mud, though doubtful!

I’m not run-ready - I hate running so have been avoiding doing any practice. I’m not even sure I’m obstacle race-ready either, as my upper body strength is pants!

I’ve smashed through some last minute weight training this week, but am having today off from the gym to recover everything.

The worst part of it is definitely that it is at night/later on in the day than a normal run. The runs I’ve done have usually started about 10am, so I don’t eat anything, or else have half a banana a couple of hours before. My big problem is that I get very bloated when running. Even if I don’t eat for three hours beforehand, I start getting such bad stomach cramps! So I’ve worked out I can’t eat anything before running, just drink water.

So now I have a dilemma of what do I eat tomorrow? There’s no way I can starve myself all day, I’ll pass out even before the race starts!

I guess I’ve got to find some light foods that’ll keep me going and won’t get caught up in my stomach. Maybe fruit and veg? I feel like I should have something substantial for breakfast.. Eggs? A slice of toast?? I don’t know! I wish I’d practiced this!

It’s a 6km race, but you’ve got two hours to run as many laps as possible, and I’d really like to do two laps. It’d make my day if I could! Unfortunately at the minute I’m worried how I’ll even get around one. But we’ll see.

Wish me luck!

So full of fizzy! Playing beer pong with water :(
Ahhh nemesis move! I’ve never felt so much pain in my entire life! ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ง Alright so today has been tough - did a really heavy class at lunch time, damn you Charlotte! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช but it sorted out #cardioweek nicely as I didn’t want to run today. And did pole tonight after work, and managed this move I’ve been having problems with for months! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
Gains gains gains. Think I’ve lost some body fat. Woop. Just need that six pack then I’ll be happy. ๐Ÿ™Œ
Sunday ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Day 3 of #cardioweek. My legs are so hurting today! Definitely not running anymore this week. Tomorrow will be a circuits class, not sure what I’ll do Friday yet. Preparing for Sunday’s run ๐Ÿ˜Š Doughnut Dash! ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ˜ it’s a 5km track, I’m actually wondering if I could make it round twice and get 10 donuts!
Need a new mantra. This one seems appropriate. Must remember that being nice will always prevail. Too many nasty people in this world. Let them have their hate, I want to be happy ๐Ÿ’œ
Was at a loose end tonight, ended up at SD and did a muay thai/kickboxing class. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Ÿ Keep feeling traumatised every time I go to my dojo at the min. There’s some nasty people there (keyboard warriors) and I feel anxious whenever I see them. Sick of people thinking I can’t be touched, they can say and do whatever. I guess I try and act like I don’t have feelings to protect myself, but it’s getting tiring quick. I am a delicate f**king flower and will cry if you burn me ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž
