The long and winding road

Just brief update on my progress to date ... tomorrow will be my 3rd week of 8.5K long run ... with a 5k and a shorter interval run as well ..

All going to plan so far ... I get out early usually 6 to 6.30 am while it's still cool ish .. the plan is do 8.5 again tomorrow .. which I expect to now do comfortably .. mind set is long slow run .. think I am getting the hang of that at last !!

Next week will cut back and do a shorter run to consolidate before then going for 10K+ a bit .. still keeping the 5K and intervals run. Working harder on those to.improve pace .. fingers crossed ..

For some reason my mind is saying go for a half . There is a local in October so plenty of time if I do.. would probably need a more structured plan for that .. still time to think about it .. see how the longer runs progress

I know it's hot out there but isn't it wonderful to be able to enjoy the outside at what ever time of day you run..

Happy days in deed . 😊😊

Thanks Irishprincess you are right it doesn't seem like it now 😊 maybe a little older and a very small bit wiser ( open to discussion) 😂

Really good to hear Rob. Especially the bit about 10k "+" you can do it! I'm still consolidating my 3ks. Hoping to up the distance next week though :)

Thanks Ruth_canal_runner .. well done you too .. progress is progress no matter the distance .. you can do it 😊

10K + ... still hard to believe I can run those sort of distances .. what ever happened to 5K will be enough 😂

Yes 5k will be enough but 6k feels great, then before you know it... right now I am excited about getting back to 5k though :)
