First 10k run of 2020!

Misty, muddy and a slight drizzle but we loved our first run of the new year! A land slip and very muddy lanes, due to heavy rain, meant a slight detour and rather slow going, but it was just so good to be out running and manage a 10k.

Goals for 2020 ...... enter a Canicross event, run 10 miles, run at least three events, get back to regular strength &flex work and go to PR once a month.

All the best to you all. Happy running πŸ˜€

Good run for you today, I will be running my first 10K tomorrow, I thought I would run a 10K on the 10th day of Christmas which is the 3rd January, the route I will be running on is not too muddy, mainly tarmacadam.

Yay for getting out there.

Definitely enter a Canicross event, it’s a really different experience to running at an event where dogs are allowed.

I really need to do some strength work.

I find it really hard to get motivated to do strength work - not the same buzz as running (clearly not working hard enough!). Planning to book a place in a Doggie Dash today! A local one, just for fun, not a really serious Canicross event. Squiggy will get VERY excited!! 🐾🐢

Those conditions look very hard work well done for reaching 10k in them. Grand plans for 2020, I wish you the best of luck. Happy running

Thank you 😊 Luckily most of the trail was ok, but this lane was thick with mud that had come off the fields with the recent heavy rain!

Great running skysue16. That mud really must have gave your legs a real workout. Have a great 2020 😊😊
