7k for the first time!

After life got in the way of my Monday run, I worked Tuesday and Wednesday, so today was my day for a run. Hubs wasn't keen but I persuaded him to come out for a slow (for him anyway) jog........oh about 3-4 miles depending how I felt! My usual twice a week is 5 or 6k at the moment having graduated end of October. Well today I felt good. I had the usual gremlin at 2.5 miles but carried on with the one foot in front of the other mantra. The last mile was with a head on windy blast and chewing leaves! I got to near the end of the four miles and shouted to hubs to detour to his horror! Another half a mile detour to home got me to 7k. I am feeling so good!! I just hope I can repeat it.

Congratulations! I'm sure you will be able to repeat and go beyond as well if you did it in such bad weather. Makes me ashamed of complaining about my still 22 C.


I loved 7 K it was my magic number!

Very well done you! Hubs too.. 'though maybe unwillingly :)

You cracked it and left those pesky gremlins reeling in your dust... go you :)


Thank you old floss. I need to try and repeat it and stick with it for a while before increasing again. It is going to be a slow journey to 10k I think but there is no rush!

My sentiments exactly. Enjoy the fact that you know you can do it.. I spent ages just doing three runs, each week, a 3 K a 5 K and a 7 K

I completed my first 10K on my one year,runniversary ! It was amazing.

No hurry for me wither, just taking it one run at a time, enjoying experiments in running and really having fun...I was stuck at 9 K for ages, but it did not really bother me and then.. it just sort of happened. :)

Look forward to your posts !
