After 9 days of no running due to a stomach problem, it was nice to get out tonight and do some miles.

It’s funny when you go out sometimes and you don’t feel right and tonight was one of those nights! It probably did not help that I did not eat dinner until late and then went running about an or so later at 9 o’clock.

My intention was to try and complete 4-5 miles, but in the end I struggled to make 3.4 miles; to be fair though, I did go off at quite a fast pace, so not completely surprised!

My time in the end was not that bad with the exertions being completed in just over 31 minutes. I was pleased with that considering the route I took entailed a significant big hill near the end.

With just over a week to go now to the 5km JP Morgan run at Battersea Park, I will say that my confidence is a tad low, but I’m determined to try and pack in a few miles over the next week or so to hopefully give myself a chance of a decent time.

With my commitment now to the British 10km in London only 4 days later (14th July), I’m now unashamedly looking for sponsorship at the following link. Any donations of any size are gratefully accepted!
