It's been a long 8 weeks following Ju-Jus 10k plan but worth it.
January 1st saw my first slow 5k and April 14th my 1st slow 10k.
I feel a bit of a fraud watching the Commonwealth Games and thinking about my speed or lack of it but I keep telling myself it's not about the speed.
My run today was over a modified version of my 9k from last week. The warmer morning meant a quick stop to remove outer layers was required much earlier than last week but at least it meant I was able to get into my stride.
My one achievement other than getting to the distance was running up and over the railway bridge. Last week was more of a walk up the steps whereas this week was more of a trot.
Right now I feel a mixture of happiness and thoughtfulness. Happy to have achieved what I set out to do 8 weeks ago yet thoughtful at wondering where my running journey will take me next.
We will see as each week goes by but I think for my next few runs ... They will be a tad shorter!
