10km Monday 😁

Tqhere were so many reasons why this 10km run was not a good idea today-

1. I had no idea where I was going and had to keep asking for directions.

2. It was mid day and very hot.

3. I was very anxious as I had just left my 72yr old mother at the airport to fly alone for the first time in her life.

4. I really should have been at work.

5. I had forgotten my water.

6. I needed aπŸ’©

7 . it was only my second 10km run

But I absolutely loved . The river and the abbey were wonderful . I got over the heat and once I stopped stressing about getting lost it was just what I needed to stop me worrying about my mum.

I had to do a bit of walking but I beat my previous 10km time of 1h20 and I have another 10km under my belt. Isn’t running awesome πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜€

Wow well done!

That did make me giggle! Sometimes I think the runs we dread aren’t so bad, yet those we think will go well turn out to be horrendous!

Thanks everyone. My mother is safely settled in the apartment in Spain and I’m still glowing from the fact that me running 10km is not a fluke. I can actually do it and have now done it more than once πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
