All these accidental runs people keep doing...now I see why.
I went out with the intention of doing my second 8k run, but on my warm up walk to the starting point I decided to set my app at 8.5k and finish at 8 if I needed to.
I went off much too fast so the 2nd and 3rd k were a bit slower. Then I hit my stride and sped up again. 6k was hard (probably because I was going too fast) but then at 7k got my second wind and went speeding off to the end again. Got to 8 and decided I was fine for the 8.5...reached that and thought sod it...I may as well carry on for 9!
So 9k in 1hr. Way too fast and I couldn't have gone another step and can feel it now but proud of myself. Didn't see how I would enjoy running longer distances yet here I am. Loving it!
Just need to book my first 10k race now 😊
