9K done!

Well clocked up 9k this morning - exhausted now!! Times were nothing special, and had to take time out to catch my breath, but never mind, I did it!! It was a beautiful morning by the sea, lovely clear sky...but a tad chilly. Saw a mad guy go in for a swim, his dog was more sensible and didn't go in πŸ˜€.

So plan is for a few quiet 3-5k runs to recover, then it's the big 10K - gotta be done!

Happy running everyone πŸŽ‰πŸ™‚πŸŒ»

Ooo Gran4z well done on your fabulous 9k. How exciting to be so close to the big 10 now! πŸ‘πŸ‘

I’m going for the slightly less big 8 tomorrow morning, and I’m being careful what I eat and drink today. It’s good to have someone to follow, and that’s you!

Keep posting, I want to follow you some more! πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘

Cheers cheekychipmunks - not sure about following me - I’m kind of out there doing my thing - somewhat unstructured. But hey, you and I will get there one way or another - happy running and hope tomorrow goes well for you - slow and steady πŸŒ»πŸ™‚

Good work! 9km is not to be sniffed at! If you can do 9km, you can do 10km, trust me. 😁 Taking time to catch breath is always sensible on these longer runs, too.

Congrats and onwards and upwards! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Well done. Sounds like you have a sensible plan. 10km coming up !

Thanks. Best laid plans...will do my best to stick to it, but I do get a bit carried away sometimes!

Fabulous! I'm planning to do my first 10k next week, and I will think of you. We can do this!

Oh really good luck with your 10k. Have you stuck with Ju-ju's plan? I haven't, too many interruptions with the plan so I've been making it up as I go along! Let us know how you go...and thank you for the onward support 🌻

Thanks Gran4z. Yes, following Ju-ju's plan, but there's nothing wrong with improvising when life gets in the way ... and its obviously working for you!😊

Gran4zGraduate10 in reply to Tartancat

Well kind of...but I do worry that I'm not building up properly and sensibly to the 10k...just want to do it!! Impatient, that's me. My old legs ache this evening, despite serious stretching post run - but think I will sleep well tonight. Happy days, happy running πŸ™‚πŸŒ»

I needed a good session with the foam roller after yesterday's 9k, but feel fine today πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Forgot about that...must dig mine out. Haven't tried it yet!

Well done Gran4z not long for you to go now. What a lovely day too. Enjoy it while it lasts. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸ‘

Thanks Dexy5. As a 10k graduate, what are you doing now?

Well done. Just the big 10km to go. Then you can take it easy with short 5km β€˜recovery runs’. That always tickles me. Who thought at the beginning that any of us would consider 5km to be β€˜short’!!!

Gran4z
Gran4zGraduate10 in reply to BaddieThePirate

Hadn’t had that thought! But yes, 5K used to be the ultimate goal - what’s happening to us? Happy running πŸ˜‰
