My 3rd 10K

So I've had a bit of a time of it lately and for one reason or another I missed my Saturday morning 5K and my long (for me) run on Monday.

So today things fell right and I've been out in the rain after work for a cheeky 10K. I find running very good for my soul and today it was great to just relax and unwind.

I have been slowly building up my long run and running it at 7m/k so I was happy enough with keeping that pace for the whole 10K, finishing in 1:10:02.

This means I've knocked 5 minutes 2 seconds off my previous PB for the 10K 😀

Hope everything's good with you all.

That's a great chunk off your PB - well done! Funny how a few unplanned days off seem to work wonders sometimes isn't it?🙂

If you were to enter a 10K race, I would predict that you would knock another 10 minutes off that!!!

Thanks Floss, in my homemade plan it should have been on Monday and just 9K but from 5K onwards I think I'd made my mind up to do the 10.

8K is pretty much there though, if you increased that by half a k each week you would have it nailed in 4 weeks 😃

Well done! Doesn't it feel good when you manage to sneak in a longer run than you'd planned?

I've signed up for a 10km in just under 4 weeks, so I need to sneak in a few more long runs before then.

Yep it certainly does.

My first 10K I just went out and did it, I had run 5K three times a week for a few weeks beforehand. Luckily I got away with it 😀

I think I'm at the stage now where I am going to do 10K on a Monday for a few weeks before increasing the distance by a k a week to take it towards HM.

Some people swear by a rest week every now and again. It certainly has done you good.

Thank you 😀 I didn't have a week off though, I don't know how I'd cope with that! I really don't like it when I miss runs.
