Set out this morning at 6.50 with no intentions of trying for a sub 5k...it’s only ever been a dream. The weather here is glorious this morning. No head phones today just the tweeting of the birds and the early morning traffic.
My garmin beeped to say I had done my first km, time 6:04. Much quicker than I thought, but I felt comfortable. Second km 5:58, wondering can I keep this pace up? Third km 5:59. Now the challenge was on, in my head I was thinking this is my chance to do it. Pushed on to, fourth km 5:56. Nearly there, really having to push the last the last 500 meters. It looked such a long way off and momentarily stopped for a split second with about 200 to go. Then I thought of my dear mam saying you can do it, keep going , so I sprinted until I I heard my garmin beep at 5k. Last km 5:52.
I had done it 29:55. In shock 😱🤪
Thanks to Mam who is always with me
Dreams really do come true 😊
