A well spent week end run with the ladies in the morning🏃♀️ and men in the evening🏃♂️🙈
Running has becoming more exciting when I run with the group. And being with the company of strong, inspired, and with likeminded spirit and passion for running and health is what made me more persistent to keep going. It infused a lot of fun in the process that I thought I could on my own. .
In the morning, I ran with the #Q90k ladies' marathon power walk as part of the training for our upcoming 90KM fundraising Ultra Run on January 25th which is 5 weeks to go. Some of the ladies amazingly managed to make the 42km distance! A huge personal best to some of us. A full marathon distance! Wootwot!👏 I just did about 38Km trying to save the energy for my night's adventure...got an excuse🙈
So at night, i partially joined the Transqatar team traversing North to South of Qatar and we met in the middle of somewhere a family of locals who were very hospitable to us. Running in a rocky terrain specially at night is faaaaar different from pounding the smooth pavements both physiological and psychological. I am not an expert on ultrarunning and I'm not doing this for fame or whatsoever, but the feeling of personal achievement and accomplishing the unthinkable pays it off. Perhaps, my love for stars and moon gazing, and the calmness of the desert at night were just part of what dragged and made me crazy to get into this adventure 😜.
Unfortunately, no season lasts forever. Just after about 11km, I got injured last night. I sprained my right knee that I can barely walk as of writing this😆. A massive thank you to the organizers and unconditional supporters.
Lesson: don't stupidly look up and star gaze while running in a shitty-rocky terrain, otherwise...ouchy!
