Maybe some of you remember I posted about a run with my father-in-law? I had just graduated and I went for a 30 minute run with him (he's a seasoned runner who runs 10k without blinking). I did it, but felt dishearted by the fact that I was so slow and could barely run 4k.
That was in May I think, now it is two months later and this morning I went running with him again.
We are in Sweden and we ran in the forrest. I startled a deer and it shocked me when it ran out on the path right in front of me.
Well, the best thing was that not only could I almost keep up with my father-in-law, I also just kept running and did a whooping 8k, a distance I was not planning to do until mid September 🏃❤🏃
My longest run before was 5.5k and I was only planning to run 6.5k maybe 7k today, but by the time we reached 7k I was still feeling great and there was 1k home. I'm a bit tired now, especially in my hips, and I am wondering if I have progressed way too fast...
