Day 28 Promathon

Today is the day we've all been waiting for - no not the last 2 days of Juneathon, but my daughter's Prom Day!

I took the day off work to taxi Princess Dani around as required so was able to go out for my run first thing. I had only planned on doing 2 miles a day for the last 3 days but of course Juneathon madness took over and I decided to head out for 4!  That was a big mistake.  It was a very warm morning and although I took it very slowly it wasn't long before the sweat was running off me.  I had to keep wiping my sunglasses because they kept steaming up!  There were a couple of other runners out and we all agreed it was a warm one.  Not sure why but on the way back I began to feel a bit unwell, whether it was the fact I hadn't let my breakfast go down, over hydrating or over-heating I don't know but after a while I got that impending feeling of doom in my stomach that every runner dreads - I can honestly say I have never been so glad to see those golden arches.  Had a quick pit stop and then set off for home.  My Garmin was also playing up and didn't stop when I got stuck at the train crossing (again!) so all in all not a good run.  I'm sticking to 2 miles for Friday and Saturday ..... maybe!

Only a couple of short walks for Archie with me today, one before we went to the hairdressers at 12pm, and a longer one at 2.30pm.

So on to the business of the day.   Just a few photos before they left !
