A Post Dentist Half Marathon To Make It 10 In 10
10 half marathons in 10 days. I knew I could make it but I didn’t think I would if you catch my drift. It just goes to show you what is possible if you stop doubting yourself so fucking much.
Today’s half was the hardest of the month as I had to go to the dentist for some fillings before the run and I think I was still wankered on Novocaine by the time I started jogging. If Paula Radcliffe was standing at the end with piss test gear then I think I’d have failed as I was still as high as a kite.
I’ve started trying to run faster by running slower and easier. I know that sounds like a complete contradiction but my aim is to make the time seem like it’s moving quicker. If I’m thinking happy thoughts and not pushing my body then it seems like I’m out there for less time.
Even if it takes over 2 and a half hours to get there.
I had a bit of a cheat day with my diet yesterday. I went into Sainsbury’s and bought myself a tray of Guylian seashells for breakfast. I was intent on eating every single fucking shell but it was 11am and I couldn’t handle that much sugar.
I ate 10 of them and threw the rest in the bin as I’d only have finished the rest of them after the run.
I need to look after my mouth, soul and body better.
And that’s the tooth.
