After a terrible weekend both weather wise and health wise I was really feeling the need to do some form of exercise but I knew I was not up for speed work. We had a big cyclone go through over the weekend so the weather was WILD to say the least and I ended up with a banger of a migrane that only went away yesterday..... way way way too many drugs in my tummy and its left me with some shocking abdo pains. But I was determined to walk tonight and decided that I would just do an easy 5km.
I warmed up with Kay for 3 laps and then had a good stretch. I figured at the very least I could make it to 3km and if I felt ok then carry on for the 5km. When my tummy is like this I never know how I will go, sometimes I can start out and it settles and goes away...other times it just hurts the whole way but not enough to stop.
I was really surprised when I started out how ok I felt.....Robyn did say I looked abit stiff but I settled after a bit. (was not able to twist to much at the beginning) so when I went through my first km in 5:52 I was really surprised. It didnt feel like I was going that fast. hmmmm wonder if my Multi B and Vit D injection have worked so quickly lol....only had them yesterday. But the rest of my walk remained the same pace. I finished the 5km and felt really good ..... stomach still in knots but I am used to that....but body wise I felt great.
29:17 for an easy 5km .............. hell yes I will take that!!!
