10 miles in sight 🀞

I wasn't planning on running today until I saw the abysmal forecast for tomorrow. 🌧🌬 I set off, reluctantly and slowly, uphill and into the wind. I almost gave up at 3k, but told myself that I would settle into the run and if all my VRBs can keep going then I can too! So I did..

It was worth it, I completed my longest ever run at 14k and knocked 2 minutes and 7 seconds off my 10k PB. I even enjoyed it! I'm hoping to get to 10 miles by the end of March and maybe I will be ready for the Liverpool Rock and Roll half marathon at the end of May? 🀞 please keep up all your encouraging and inspiring posts. 😊

Congratulations on that PB for 10K and running 14K in not ideal weather conditions, I wish you luck for your HM at the end of May.

Thank you. I know. I am pleased, especially as it was unexpected. I think you generally run in worse conditions! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Fantastic run. Sounds like the best idea to do it pre storm. Its amazing we all keep going. I'm sure it's this forum helping us all believe in ourselves and building resilience. Happy running

I think you're absolutely right granny to be. I would still be at 5k without this forum. Hope you're not waiting too long for the new arrival x

Brilliant job CSTN, very nearly there πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘, it's strange how the 1st few K can seem like more of a struggle than than the last few...as you say, you just have to slog on until (if you're lucky) you settle into it.

Great sense of achievement when you've ignored your gremlins then end up having an awesome run πŸ˜πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thank you. Run46. I'll hopefully increase the distance in 3 or 4 weeks. Hope all is going well for you after achieving your half marathon 😊
