I am feeling good today! January is generally a bad running month for motivation but I am doing ok with my hm training (up to 9.6 miles). I have joined a local running group who have been lovely. In fact, today one of the group paced 4 of us at parkrun to get a sub 30 minute. At about 2k, whilst dodging people and puddles, I managed to get ahead of our pacer who shouted for me to go for it. For the rest of the run I had images of them catching me up especially on the hill but alas no. I came in at 28.33, a new pb (last pb 30.06). I was a little teary as my 2018 goals after my brother died was to get cardiac testing (all clear so far), a sub 30 home 5k parkrun and to run a hm. I am yet to do the hm, that is a challenge! I have also now run 50 miles in January for my virtual challenge. Yes today it feels good!.
