Finally my 1st official 10k race, just a local 10k , The Abbey 10k , about 400 runners, bit of mixed terrain, grass, road, compacted farm track, road and then finish back on grass.
Clock was approx 1:08, not fast but thoroughly enjoyable, a few wobbly moments around 7-8k but ran through them , the weather was kind , Sun,clouds and some wind , ran most of it with a lovely lady which was nice as I usually run alone.
It felt harder than I thought It would , i was very pleased with my breathing though felt controlled and easy most of the way round.
The best bit was my son being there,made it even more special, will i do it again , yes very much so now I have had a taster ☺
So there we are , happy , tired a little emotional , I only went and did it !!
