I have completed a 10km run today for the first time!
Three laps round the outside of the village to cover the required distance. I passed a pedestrian (twice) and two dog walkers. Where was everyone else this morning? Maybe the cold grey weather put them off.
I started my day with two slices of marmite on toast and a cup of mint tea. After an hour of housework to warm up and let my breakfast sink and two glasses of water I set off.
My target was under an hour and I did it in 58:26 with apparently my fastest 5km at 28:12 according to Strava. Back home to a big glass of water, bucket of coffee and hot shower. Sorted.
Huge thanks to Michael Johnson for getting me off my bottom in July, everyone here for continued positivity (even if I borrowed some from other people's posts), ju-ju- for the plan to get from 5k to 10k and Zombies, Run! for frightening me into running for the last few weeks.
Can't wait to see my 10k graduate badge next to my name!
Sending big hugs to you all and encouraging words to everyone else completing their first 10k this weekend. We are great
