So happy to have completed a 9k run this morning. I started out following a 5k pb of 32.52 two days previous, and a little over excited I did the first two km very quickly. I slowed the pace down slightly as I feared I would crash and burn before even getting halfway. Managed to keep a fairly good pace and ran 8k 2mins faster than before. The last km was hard but I could see the end in sight. 9km completed in 1:02:40 hooray!
This week I have been reflecting on my running journey. I stated c25k in June now I am a week away from completing 10k and I can't believe how far I have come, not to mention losing almost two stone! And I start every run half convinced that I can't do it and won't complete it. Every run is a battle of wills with myself and it feels amazing to keep challenging yourself, never competing with anyone else only focused on what your next steps are. It's a lesson in determination and resilience. So glad I started running!
