In My Next Life......
...In another life I want to be a bug!
I'm sure some of them are impervious to heat, but this old chickybabe isn't!
The Program: 800m race, AIS Track, ACTVAC, Canberra, 11th January.
This was an attempt at the 800m National Record, W75-79. I missed the record, but managed to come up with a PB of 15 seconds for that distance. I'm more than thrilled with that result!
Conditions on the night were pretty awful : 38 degrees at 7:00 p.m....that's why I want to come back as a bug, have another crack at the record & just fly around the track & not be affected by the weather!
I felt like I was about to die when I finished : legs lactic, lungs bursting, throat on fire & coughing like a consumptive! I've had that coughing/about to throw up feeling after 800m before. It's not very nice & what's worse, it lasts for several hours. ....unable to stop coughing! Strange or natural?
It'll take all of this weekend for my body to cool down & freshen up to begin some training next week, so I'll continue to watch tennis & just enjoy the break.
A great 2 days in Canberra : thanks to Flash Duck, AKI, Strewth, PRB & Ewen in particular & all whom I met at the track who as usual always make me feel so welcome.
A very special "thank you" to all my Blogging friends here, who left comments of support - when I read them I got quite a big lump in my throat! Now I wonder what that could be caused by!!
