Today I'd signed up to run far longer than I have in over a year (managed 3km at most, and only this last month).
In the end my legs didn't only carry me the advertised 8km, but the course turned out to be 11km long.
Add 42 obstacles, and I am pooped. Everything hurts.
But no, to my big astonishment I didn't actually finish last of the Elite women, despite running the wrong way and losing several spots. In the end, only 1 of our strongest female OCRers from Sweden managed to complete all obstacles. (Congrats @kiro_anna!). ***
Personally I had trouble with 3 obstacles.
Ramps and pullup obstacles are hard for me, especially at this point in time.
I've been back training more the last month, trying to find my way back. Maxed out my workouts this week, so when I saw that @action_run was coming to my hometown only two days ago, I was delighted, but already had jelly legs and arms hanging off me, plus the damn (Bakers) cysts behind my knees.
Knowing I wouldn't preform well stresses me out big time, afraid to disappoint people around me... but I enjoyed today! Mostbof it at least 😁.
I dared do something that scares me, and I far from sucked, considering.
I salute my body for putting up with my stupid ideas (it does get it's revenge in the monstrosity of DOMS I feel coming on. I doubt I'll be able to walk tomorrow), and decide that today was a personal win. 🏆😉
THANK YOU dearest and best sister and friend @liikinni and @frodejohanna for making this last minute whim possible. You mean the world to me 💖
