GSR 10km - my first 10 k

GSR 10km - my first 10 k

I completed the great Scottish run yesterday. My first official timed 10k as i am pretty sure I had done one the week before as I completed a 70 minute run as a practice but had no gadgets to measure the true distance.

My time on Sunday was 66:58. I only graduated from C25K in mid August so pleased with my progress.

I ran for chest heart and stroke Scotland as I had a heart attack in March 16. The heart attack has caused me to re-evaluate my lifestyle and created the platform for my running adventure which has turned out to be one of the most positive experiences of my life.

Need to consider what my next challenge should be.

  • What a brilliant acheivement oscarrun. You are an inspiration, don't think there is any danger of you losing momentum are hooked.😊

  • I did put my name on a waiting list for a local 10k at the beginning of November so perhaps I am hooked! 😀. Hopefully I will get an email in the next couple of weeks. Can also chase a PB at the park run on Saturday.
