I ran my 1st 10k this morning. I still can't quite believe it as I only started running last year, after several failed attempts, and managed my 1st 5k on my 62nd birthday.
I tried a new route (tacking 2 together really) and whilst I struggled with the last 1.5k, I persevered and did it. Only to find that Map my run had not saved the data grr!
I'm painfully slow, but I don't mind that, it's the achievement that counts. Whilst out, another runner breezed past me, leaving me for dead. In the past that's had a big negative impact, but today i was determined.
To quote Eddie Izzard, who knows a thing or to about distance running, it's 90% about mental strength, and the last 10% is in your head!
happy running everyone xx
