Went out today as the weather was great and started running in my local park round the lake. Felt so hard and even at 3k felt like going home. Determined to do a minimum of 5k which I did and then ran a bit more to 6k. The furthest I ever ran before was 7.5k, so thought I would like to beat that and when I reached 8k, thought I was so close to 10k, might as well plod on! First ever 10k done. Two rest days now maybe parkrun on Saturday if I recover. In total shock and legs feel good, very happy as I graduated from C25K 13 weeks ago, haven't been following a programme but just increasing my run times. 7.21 mins per km, took me 1 HR 15 mins. Didn't know I could run that long - happy Christmas to me (early)! Julie
