A gentle 10K

After the London Vitality Virtual 10,000 I ran two weeks ago, this morning I ran my 26th 10K, I set out to do two things, to get a sub 60 minutes 8K split and a sub 75 minutes 10K, I managed both, my 8K split time was 59.26 and ran the full 10K in a sub 75 minutes time of 1:14:18, all in all for me that was a gentle 10K, about five minutes slower than two weeks ago.

Thanks, I might try for 16K /10 miles sometime this year, perhaps in a fortnight.

How exciting! Have you done 10 miles before?

I have ran 5/10 mile runs, the last one was on October 6th 2021 which was my fastest, run in a time of 2:01:02, so it's high time to have another go at that distance.

Oh wow, 5 already! So you'll know what to expect. Good luck with it, I look forward to reading your post about your 6th 😁

The way I felt this morning and two weeks ago was I might be able to continue for a bit longer, so who knows my 6th ten miles run might be possible. 😊 🏃🏾

That is correct Oldfloss, I also remember my first 10 miles run, it was raining but I just continued on until the run was completed, it was so exciting 😊👍🏃🏾

It was raining when I did mine!!! Xxx

If the rain isn't too heavy and it's not blowing a gale I will be running as normal, very icy weather is dangerous for running in which case I won't run. 🏃🏾

Ice is a non -starter . X

Yes but after a run I enjoy an ice cream swirl, I did mention that in my recent report on finishing that London Vitality Virtual 10,000, when I came home the ice cream was delicious 😋.

Thanks Julia, I enjoyed that run on Wednesday, I might try a 10 mile run in a few weeks' time at a slightly quicker pace.

Good discipline Al. Running too fast too often is a recipe for a short cut to the IC…don’t I know it! A good solid sensible run. Have some ice cream!! 🍨🍧🍦

AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Beachcomber66

You are so correct, I don't want to end up on the IC, when I got home I enjoyed my chocolate ice cream whirl.

Brilliant work AlMorr. You're such an inspiration
