Hi lovely running friends, I ran the Croydon 10K in 1:02:39 earlier, according to the official timing. That’s a PR for me so very please with that 😀👍
I took it slowly and carefully over the first 1.5K as it was all uphill and we were running on the pavement next to a fairly busy road.
The next 1K was on a road that had been closed so we had a bit more room to spread out 🙂
After that, the next 2K was downhill then flat so it was quite a nice section 🏃♂️
After that it was a mixture of uphill and downhill for about the next 4K or so 😳 so needed to pace myself, which I seemed to manage OK 👌
The final section was vaguely uphill towards the finishing straight. 🙂 It was great to see the finishing line ahead so I tried to speed up a little bit and cheered myself over the line 😀👍
Thanks everyone for getting me this far. I couldn’t have done this without you all!❤️💕
