I had the BEST run yesterday. It was over my favourite route which runs past a golf course then along the Brisbane River and throught the University of Queensland. The golf was covered with fog and the River was like a mirror. there were runners, walkers, cyclists, golfers and rowers out doing their thing and it was only 5:30 in the morning. It was cooler than it has been for a while and, thankfully, not raining.
But they were not the reasons that it was the BEST run. It was the BEST run because I felt like I could run again. I could speed up and my HR would go up but when I slowed down it went down (it hasn't been doing that). My legs felt strong all the way to the end. I had a runner's high that lasted all day. I felt like a drug addict who'd been given a shot of her favourite recreational drug.
My name is Charmaine and I'm an endomorpho-junkie!
