Trumpet Blowing Time!

I haven't posted anything for ages - in fact not sure if I ever have in B25k! I graduated from c25k last December and have been running 2-3 times per week since (give or take the odd week). This morning I did my first 10k - decided just to keep going beyond my usual 8k route. Chuffed to bits. Would never in a million years have believed I could do this if asked a year ago. Maybe helped having Brian at my back on the odd hill, though to be fair he slapped me in the face a few times too! ๐Ÿ˜

Ps - I have my Garmin set in miles! I'm legit lol.

Thank you. With all the comments about my time I'm now wondering if my Garmin is right because I wouldn't have put myself down as a fast runner - not that I have anyone to compare myself to as I always run alone - except when one of the offspring accompanies me on their bike! Might set map my run next time just to check Lol!

I did 10k for the first time just over a week ago. It took me 1:15:44. I took it nice and easy. I have ran a sub 30 min 5K only once. I am usually knocking around 31 to 32 mins for a 5K. I will train further at get used to running 10K, hopefully that will help at reducing both my 5K and 10k times.

Your Garmin will be correct.

I must admit it's just getting out in the fresh air and enjoying the endorphins at the end of it all that keeps the motivation going for me. Though a challenge is good too lol!

Well done you! Fantastic time ! I have mine set in miles too It doesn't seem to be that long when your running it I think. In Km's for me it always seems longer some how. Mind over matter I think!

Anyhoo! Well done๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Happy running ! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
