10.25 miles was my target today, and after killing a treadmill on my first attempt earlier in the week I figured it was time to get outside. I decided I’d leave the Garmin at home, I could run with Nike Run Club on the 10 mile guided run, and just pull the phone from my arm strap to hit play again when I got to 10miles as it would otherwise end the run.
Felt pretty good out there today, no pace updates on the guided runs so I relaxed and figured I was going pretty much at my normal pace.
10.25 miles passed pretty soon... lived it. Spent some of cooldown telling NRC which shoes I’d worn, how it was and all that jazz, then saved the run. Achievements lit up all over the place, 3 of which are in the picture... I also nailed fastest km and fastest mile, and a couple of other badges for running regularly.
While I’m pleased with the results (my previous best 10k was 67 minutes) I’m aware that I just broke a cardinal rule, don’t go faster and further in the same run. Couple of rest days I think.
