I bet you saw my terrible-after-18km-run-pictures in my first and very brief post about my longest run so far – It’s Getting Tougher ! Part.1
So here is a bit more detailed summary of Sunday longest run:
I wake up 9:30 am. Had a white coffee, brown toast with almond butter and fruit salad. Then hesitation come into force. I was up, dressed and ready for the run only at 11:30 am. I won’t lie I was scared to bits! 6 km no problem, 10 km fine, but 18km??? Ohh and not to forget that marathon is 42.195 km! What the hell I signed up myself for?
The first three km were the hardest one! I took it easy and I tried to switch my mind to something different from thinking about running! So by 6th km all my holidays for 2012 were planned. By 8th km I choose which shoes to invest for the summer;) By 11th km I knew my outfit for yesterday evening.
After 13th I was not able to think at all !!! ;)
By 18th I was didn’t feel anything else than my hips and feet. Wow I did it!
Summary: 11.39 miles (18.33 km) in 1:55:39 sec with average speed 6:19 min/km
I was meeting Paulina during the afternoon and we decided that Blackheath would be perfect! And we were
hungry starving! We popped in to Cafe Rouge but we both were not sure about the place and eventually we end up in GIRAFFE.
We were welcomed with great enthusiasm and no fake smiles:) Seemed like a nice place!
To start, we ordered some drinks. I went for gall of sparking wine. Yeap girls’ lunch!
I wasn’t in mood for warm food, so I picked up a salad:
It was absolutely amazing and 100% what I needed.
Grilled salmon looked great and as Paulina said tasted equally good!
Everything tasted especially amazing plus service was excellent! I will definitely be back there!
