Another incredible day runining in the VERY beautiful Curracloe Woods and Beach. I was deligeted to come in 2nd to an amazing runner. I pushed myself hard and really enjoyed the view as I ran through the woods and back up the beach which was a TRUE killer on my legs. Once the legs got tired I had to concentrate on using my arms to keep pushing myself and moving myself forward!
I did a great time of 47 mins which I was really happy with as it wasn't a straight road run but mainly through woods and then a hard push back up along the beach to the finish line which was a short struggle up a steep hill down to the finish line. My brother Martin took Gold in the men's which was nice to take a Gold and Silver home for the Team Askins family :)
I exercise to keep myself fit but I could never have said it was something I enjoyed. In fact I would have said it was quite a chore - until I had my first class with Shelley that is! She makes the classes so much fun, no two classes are ever the same and now I'm so disappointed if I have to miss one! - Carmel
