I went out early yesterday so that it would be nice and quiet. I was nervous as it was my final run of Juju's Magic 10 (which I found worked perfectly - thanks Juju 👍) I had signed up for a 10K a few months ago which should have been today but I could complete it virtually which I did yesterday. It was hard but I did it! I tried to push myself a bit as it was a race after all and managed to just pip 70mins which was my goal as my best 5K is 34mins.
When I got home after a little walk to ease the stiff legs I burst into tears! I read afterwards you can get over emotional when fatigued!! 🤣 I was knackered but I felt I'd been on such a journey - I completed C25K about a year ago, overdid it afterwards, spent a couple of months not being able to run (Achilles strain) Then repeated C25K, this time consolidated 5K, then did Juju's plan. I've been running to help my mental health and it's worked, I love being outside in the early morning fresh air, plodding along, what a sense of freedom! Plus I was always the girl at school who was rubbish at sport and would finish last at sports day so I can't believe I've found a physical activity that I enjoy and feel now will be always part of my life.
I have changed my profile pic in celebration! Thank you everyone who contributes to the site, I've spent hours reading posts and learning more about running 👍 Is it possible to get a badge please 🙏 😊 Happy running everyone and sorry for the long post, got carried away!!
