YES! YES!! YES!!! I ran 10K - non-stop, in 1 hour and 14 minutes-first time ever!!! Today I went out thinking that I was going to do my usual 5K run, but on my way to 5K I remembered the fellow blogger/Poster ashton46 saying that 'if you can run 5K you can run 10K'. Well, I thought that I would give it a go, at least try to run 7.5K. Then when I was just reaching 7.5K I thought that I would try whether I can do 10K, and I continue running, not too fast but faster than a jog, it was great, I did not even feel tired anymore, my legs were just taking me and did not stop until they took me all the way to finish 10K. I stopped, but I would have run more as I was not tired and was so thrilled when my Garmin said it was 10K! Wow, who would have thought in February that I would do a 10K run, heh?
You know I listen to music when running, you know what? I would have danced the rest (returning home) to the music if there weren't people in the park. It was dark as it was around 9.45pm when I finished my run-I started late as it was too hot and too sunny until around 8.30pm or so.
When I returned home, my Husband was very upset and son (6 years) was crying, they were worried why I took so long, Husband said I was very irresponsible for not letting him know that I decided to run an hour! I did not take the phone and just got carried away! (Ooops!) Usually I am home in 40 minutes or so.
So I really did not have a chance to properly 'celebrate' my achievement. It is 2 hours after my run now, and I got to write this blog/post. My knees are complaining a bit, but they'd better behave as I will have another run soon!
Good luck runners-keep up the good work!!
