First 10k booked!

Something has happened that I never thought possible just a few short weeks ago. I've only gone and booked myself on a bloody 10k!

And what a difference it has made!

Previously I had been running 5k maximum, with one attempt at this distance falling short.

On Tuesday I went out for a run with the mindset of running just for the fun of it, no times, no podcasts, no set distance, just running. My only restriction being having to be home by a certain time.

I ran 6.82km in 40:09 and felt fantastic!

This run has convinced me I will be able to run 10k come July 21st.

Having a goal, a purpose, something else to aim for just seemed to make so much difference.

I'm going out again tonight and I can't wait!
