Went out early this morning and started running just before 7am, the early morning mist still cloaking the landscape, a slight breeze in places , pretty much perfect running conditions for me.
The goal was at least 10k , looking at getting to 14k depending on how I felt going along, felt strong in some places and less so in others. Got to the 5k point and had to decide , go on or turn around . Turn around it was, I dont think I am mentally or physically ready to go beyond 10 - 12 km but that is ok . I look back to starting C25K week 1 run 1 and how hard 60 secs running was and now I can run for 60 mins plus , that surpasses everything I could really imagine .
My splits for 10k are pretty consistent and as it is a 10k race in June that is what I am sticking with, hopefully get a bit faster but if not that is ok too.
Yeah I would love to go beyond and get to my 10 mile goal but if not it really isn't the end of the world is it?
We all have limitations I guess the real trick is knowing when you reach them , seems i have learned more than just how to run since starting this amazing journey 😊
Happy running what ever distance or time you do 😊
