Flukey run when 5k turns into 10k

I am the first to admit I am an inconsistent runner and was taking the Christmas hols as an opportunity to consolidate my 5k runs before 2019 goal of taking on 10k

My normal runs consist of a 5k runabout every 2 weeks mostly out of fear that if I dont do it I will lose the ability to do it. Having only been able to do about a max of 2 mins before giving up prior to the couch to 5k, imagine surprise when my 5k run today turned into 6+ then 7+ then at 8 i wondered if I could actually do 10k today. I had only done max of 6k previously.

Not fast but steady I clocked in 10k at 1 hour 2 mins. Shocked and very pleased - fuelled from yesterday’s massive Xmas dinner - I wonder if I can ever repeat it #2019goal

Merry Christmas everyone

Congratulations on your time for 10K, many people today have been saying that yesterday's Xmas dinner helped fuell their PB for either a 5 or 10K run, well done. 😊 🏃
