This morning I asked Hubby to take this photo of us girls who do the Sunday run together...
Two of the girls where not available to run today...one has been ill for the last few days, the other got home last night from Turkey where they spent 10 days on vacation.
Today was really hot....we left home at 9am and it was already 22 degrees Celsius ~ we spoke about meeting early in the future as the heat takes one's energy....for them more than me, as I'm an African girl and can handle the heat having grown up with it.
Today two of us ran 13km and the tall girl did 12km's...the most she has ever done, so I am feeling very proud of her today.
I told my other friend that next week I want to do 14 or 15km....but it will have to be on Friday night as next Sunday I will be in Berlin with my daughter who arrives on Saturday the 11th from Cape Town, (South African )
I've noticed something about me as a runner....I struggle the first 4/5 km....and after that I get into a rhythm and feel I can keep going.
I have to start off slowly...and then at the 5km mark I can run faster...
We never walk during our runs anymore....we run the hills, flats, downhills...
Walking is not allowed...even in the heat...:)
