Setting A New Half Marathon Personal Best Of 1:54:23. Finding A Home & A Contract.
I’ve been in London for almost 6 months and it’s only now that I’ve managed to secure a permanent place to live! I’m gonna be staying in Tottenham until the end of the year.
I’m so happy.
On top of that I’ve also secured a new contract.
So much awesome all at once, I don’t really know what to say. I’ve even got a fucking kettle. I can prepare the Pot Noodles once again. This is a game changer.
My plan was to go outside and record 7 miles at a leisurely pace. I didn’t wanna push myself too hard in the heat.
In the past my only complaint about Tottenham is that it’s not the prettiest place to run around. Tonight I found the River Lee Navigation towpath and the fucking thing extends all the way out to Hertford, Hertfordshire.
It’s at least 30 miles long.
I honestly think I’ve died and went to heaven.
I followed it out past Enfield until it started to become dark . I turned around at 6.66 miles and realised that I was on for half marathon distance.
I pushed at the end and managed my fastest ever half marathon at 1:54:23. The great thing is that I know I could have gone faster if I’d brought some water along with me.
By mile 10 the dehydration was making me dizzy as hell so I had to slow down a little.
The future is looking bright
It was a really beautiful run and that route will be amazing for long runs.
Now that I have a place to live I can change my focus from simply surviving onto improving.
There is an Easygym just down the road from the house and I’m gonna join it and scrap Puregym. I want to get back to running sub 50 minute 10ks on the treadmill again.
I’m also gonna scrap my shitty little security locker that I’m renting down in Vauxhall. It’s costing me £50 a month and if I ever go back to Vauxall again I think I’ll stick my ballsack in a blender.
Relaxing tonight by watching a document on Jim Morrison & The Doors.
Christ he was a dirty bastard.
