I did iiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!!!!! (10K that is)

So my attempt at doing the full 10k was delayed by a week due to some sort of stomach bug. I was well enough to work last week but wasn’t up for running. I did 5k on Saturday to get back in the swing of things, and as a delayed finish to week 7,and was planning to do the interval run and 5k run of week 8 before attempting the long run but I thought, “All I can think about is finally doing the 10k run, why don’t I do that first!?”

So I set off this morning, and to celebrate how long I can run now, I decided not to do half and then turn around for home, but to just run 10k away from home and then get the bus back.

This meant I got to explore the undercliff walk to Saltdean and the completely new path (to me) helped distract from my fatigue.

Also, when I stopped two different friendly dogs came up to say hello. Which was nice.

Anyway, I did it! Whoop!

Congrats! Exploring new pathways is a great distraction and 2 pups to congratulate you on a job well done is the perfect end to a great run!

Its a big milestone you've reached. I definitely felt more like a 'proper' runner for making the 10k distance.

A very big well done!

What are your new running targets?

😸 Katnap 😸

jimmersGraduate10 in reply to Katnap

Thanks! My aim for the next month is to consolidate the 10k by doing it each week until April 14th when I am doing Brighton 10k.

I’m not sure of goal after that. In terms of fitness, although I am running more, I am actually gaining weight so I need to sort diet out!

A bit of extra fruit and fibre maybe

jimmers
jimmersGraduate10 in reply to Katnap

Yeah. Less sugary things and booze I think!
