Just ran 8.15K for a new distance PB so that is my 8K done and my third run of the week. Next week starts on Saturday with Parkrun.
I did not think I could do this and I was hurting early in the run at about 2K and 3K but focus returns as you near half way and a calmness descended all around me as I kept telling myself to control my pace. I am not a fast runner by any means just a beginner really well 5 months only. My splits were, 7.17, 7.08, 6.57, 7.20, 6.57, 7.08, 6.58 and 6.41. Hope springs eternal that I will get to 10K.
I have kept off the scales since Christmas Eve, too frightened to go back on. Having lost 31KG since 22/07 though I am now more focused on controlling my weight loss and burning calories, which allows me to eat what I need.
