I can’t quite believe it but I finally managed to get to 10k!
Last week I decided I would get sponsored for my first 10k run in October so after setting up my just giving page I thought I had better get myself sorted. I wanted to post a positive story so after last weeks first 9k I thought I’d go for 10 today.
I can’t say it was easy. I think I needed another days rest after another Pb at Parkrun but it wasn’t to be. My legs we’re tired at 2k but I just told them they would feel better soon. They did 😂. Then they decided they were tired again at 5k. Well I wasn’t having that! I was going slower than Saturday so they would have to sort themselves out. Got distracted smiling at all the little ones on the beach getting ready to go sailing with their parents. Some were so tiny 😊. That sorted them for a bit but at 7k when I should have gone left as part of my route I got cold feet. I would run towards home and if my legs were still playing I’d add some extra distance when I got home. 9k and I’m still moving and not quite at 90 minutes oh well carry on and see where you get. I’m at the end of my road so run past to the end of the road and then run back and past. Please let it be 10k soon. Garmin says yes just at the back of my house. Oh bliss I did it!
Collapse in the front door to hubby clapping my arrival. I certainly deserve cake 😊🧁
