I am qualified - whooo hooo! Ran the Remax 42km race yesterday in Edenvale in 04:46:31. My splits were:
My head was really strong and my legs generally felt good. There were times after 35kms that I really had to talk myself into maintaining the pace and not walk too long. I was fresh enough at the end to really up my pace for the last 2 kms and did not feel that I would not be able to go on. I practised being mindful and present and really feeling everything. I burst into tears at the finish line - big poep! This race was very big for me as up until yesterday I wasn't sure I had the speed in me. Sore stiff legs today but otherwise feel superb!
