Woohoo πŸ™ŒπŸ»First ever 10K

Yaaaaayyyy!! I’ve done it! My first ever 10!! I was very emotional so please excuse the panda eyes in the photo 🐼. It wasn’t particularly fast (pace 8.57 time 1hr 29mins 34s) but was challenging having to dodge the slippery icy spots on the road. If anyone had told me a year ago I’d be running 5 never mind 10K I’d have thought they were bonkers and would have laughed my head off 🀣 but I’ve only bloody well done it!! I’m off for a long hot shower and a celebratory breakfast of fresh coffee and croissants πŸ₯. Happy Saturday to you lovely running guys n gals 😘

Well done πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ This calls for a celebration πŸŽ‰ πŸ₯³ 🎊 🎈 β˜•οΈπŸ₯πŸ₯

Don’t worry about how fast. That’s not the point. You nailed it by going steady. That’s the way to conquer these distances πŸ’ͺ πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

Thank you miss wobble! Was conscious that if I didn’t stick to a steady pace I’d never have done it. The croissant and coffee were delicious πŸ˜‹πŸ˜˜

Well done and congratulations AllyS. 10k is quite amazing isn’t it? Don’t worry about the time- it’s the fact that you ran it that counts. Get on that podium girl and collect your shiny badge.

Where I live in Cumbernauld we even had little snow last night and that made the pavements a little icy this morning, despite that I ran a little and saw 6 other people running at about a 35 minute 5K pace.

We had a wee flurry of snow in Ayrshire on Friday which turned to rain and froze over 😬. Well done getting out there too - it’s difficult enough as it is without having your wits about you to dodge the icy spots πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Good morning AllyS I was wondering if I should go for a run or a walk this morning, I settled for the walk, I 'burned' 496 calories with 11,203 steps, I saw 21 runners and was tempted to have a run as well, but I had walking 🚢 boots on so I just kept to a brisk walk, have a great day. 😊

Monster run Allys. Brilliant effort; very special feeling when the watch ticks over to the 10k. Coffee and croissants is a bit more refined than my flat white and bacon buttie celebration ....I think this should be a celebration weekend. Have a blast..πŸ₯‡πŸΎπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
