Good afternoon everyone
hope your all enjoying the Easter break and having a very well deserved rest! I can't believe it's only a week since London! It feels so long ago! Maybe I'm just getting old lololol!
so what's been happening with Hollywood this week then? Well , I've gone and done something I've never done before inspired by you!
as a few of you know I ran a half marathon at 6.30am last Sunday as I wanted to feel close to you running london, I managed to finish it in 2 hours 8 minutes and 33 seconds and it hurt! But job done. I read all your blogs up to 3-4 times each on Monday/Tuesday/weds and Thursday and I decided to run another half on Friday after I got in early from work! Well 1 hour 58 minutes and 4 seconds later I was done! My first proper sub 2 hour half for months! And the best thing was my hip didn't hurt at all lololol! I was amazed, yea my back and shoulders hurt but my hip was pain free!! YIPIEE! It felt like it did in the old days before the bones rubbed together! I did a 7 min 54 sec mile at mile 10 lol!! ( I must admit it was mostly downhill but don't tell anyone lololol) in the words of legend vin job done ... But was it?
i got home from work Saturday and got an amazing message from bolty our super superstar, I won't tell you what he's gone and done but boy oh boy he pushes it to a different level every time !! So with that text ringing in my ear I decided to try my 3rd half marathon in 7 days today! ( just call me oggie junior lololol).so up at 7.30am, felt tired after Friday but hoped the legs would respond when they woke up!
Started very slow and steady as I really wasn't sure how far I could go! It took 3-4 miles for my heart to beat properly but I felt ok, miles 6-10 were very tough, took all my will powwr to keep going, I went past the exact spot where my calf tore 6 weeks before London last year and it gave me goosebumps but this time no pain! The hip was still fine, shoulders grumbled a bit but my back was very bad. tried stretching it as I was running and it seemed to help. As some of you know I'm doing insanity at the moment and a lot of the exercises involve power. I used this in the last 3 miles as I kept telling myself to lift my legs from my core and not my back and this really helped! I seemed to find another gear and started the charge for home! Well the last 3 miles are mainly downhill( uphill on the way out though) and I took full advantage! I finished the laat 5k in 24 mins 53 seconds lololol! And finished in 2 hours 2 minutes and 8 seconds! YIPIEE is finished the Hollywood challenge!! Felt so strong at the end and breathing fine, I just wish I had someone else's body lol!
so thank you buzzers :) I guarantee if it wasn't for you I would not have attempted that challenge, I read your blogs ,I respond to what you do, I push because you do. I want to be like you:)
lets just keep on trucking guys!
onwards and upwards
