I've started a 10k training programme, it's 8 weeks long and you only need to be able to run 2 miles to start. This weekend's run was supposed to be 3.5 miles. Now considering the furthest I'd run prior to this had been 2.8 miles I wasn't confident I could do that. So I set myself the target of at least running 5k and go from there.
Well, not only did I do the 5k but I went even further and did 3.56 miles in 39 minutes! It took me 34.40 minutes to do the 5k part so I'm now going to try and get that below 30 minutes. I might even go to my first Park Run soon now that I know I can run the whole distance.
I'm so very chuffed with myself. I feel I'm a proper runner now that I can actually do a 5k.
