Surprise 10K

I have been working on Ju Ju's plan for the last couple of months. I have tried to keep to 3 runs a week but sometimes it has been tricky because of holidays and not finding the right places to run. But I am on week 7 and was due for my 9K run this morning. I got up early and set off across Hackney Marshes, keeping to the shady places and running at a consistent, slow pace. It was a beautiful morning and I felt fine at the end of 9K so continued to my first ever 10K. I feel so proud, having begun the C25K in January this year and finding even running for the bus a challenge! Ju Ju's plan works really well for me as it varies the distance and it means that I naturally vary my pace and I have stuck with slow and steady for the longer runs and starting more quickly on the shorter ones. I am amazed that I now consider 5K to be a short run...Thank you to the great community out there, all your comments are and continue to be hugely useful and although I rarely post, I read other people's posts regularly.

Congratulations and well done! Beautiful when it all comes together, eh? I loved discovering the slow and steady...got hung up on pace for a while after C25K. Running slower but for longer is amazing, a new and enjoyable discipline. Happy running to you! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

You can see to Hackney Marshes

Slow and steady certainly wins for the longer runs, as I’m just really starting to discover too. 😊
