There's been do much going on this week that I completely forgot to do my mid-week run 🙃. So, as runs this weekend count to VRWC, I thought I'd try for 10 miles. Easier said than done, "it's too far, you'll never do it" said the gremlins. Undaunted, I decided to think of it as a gentle 2 hour dog walk, (without the dog and at a jogging pace). Armed with kendal mint cake and water I set off along quiet country lanes, protected from the wind by high hedges. It was great to be out in the fresh air, in the sunshine and running on dry quiet roads. I started to tire around 12k but slowed down and concentrated on the views. Before I knew it 2 hours and over 10.5 miles (17k) had passed and I was safely home to a welcoming hubby, croissant, coffee and a very waggy tail. I'm sooo happy to be part of this inspiring supportive community x 😁😊🌈
Slow but steady - first 10 miles: There's been... - Bridge to 10K
Bridge to 10K
Congratulations and well done to you! That’s brilliant 👍👏🙂 Such a special milestone...... well 10 of them 😂
You should get your badge, you’ve earned it.
Fantastic work! And a beautiful picture, too. You should be very proud of that run. And the croissant and coffee sound like a very good idea...
Totally brilliant enjoy that croissant 👍
What a truly astonishing achievement. Well done. 10 miles is huge. I always think when you drive that far that it's almost unbelievable to think you can run it too. Have a well deserved rest!
Good run for you today Canstopmenow, I ran a 5K yesterday and walked 12K this morning, the strange thing is that I saw 11 running, only one man, the other ten were ladies, what is going on, even yesterday on my run, the other runners were mostly women as well.
Very well done. Super way to celebrate a sunny Sunday! 👍
Fantastic effort, and great boost to team HU. Happy running 🤗
