I’ve just completed my W6 9k. It was so lovely and I feel totally serene. ❤️
The weather was perfect for running, grey and cool with virtually no wind at last. 👊 I adapted my parkrun route as planned and the long hill wasn’t bad at all! I did the hill twice, but I’m thinking of tweaking the route again next week and doing it 3 times! Really? Me?! 🏃♀️
I surprised myself whilst running laps around the lake by doing a gazelle spring past a chap walking his dog. I had to get by and I dreaded it, but the power I felt in my legs surprised me! It shows I could (should probably) be running faster, but I love my runs so much and don’t want to ‘ruin’ them by being all out of breath. Don’t laugh - ridiculous aren’t I?!!
Anyway, I shaved 32 seconds off the 9k I did the first time round and a whopping 2m 50 seconds off the 9k time when I actually did the 10k. I’m very pleased with the slow but steady progress I’m making.
Enjoy your running everyone, and anyone who doubts their ability to run longer distances - well you can! The Magic 10 Plan makes it possible for everyone! 💙 I’ll be doing it again next time round! 🏃♀️😅
