Hi fellow C25Kers
Well last week I ran 8km so today I wanted to do the same or go a bit further so I set off with some Turkish delight for at 6km mark and had to do an extension of a route that I have done before which included crossing a field. The first two km didn't feel as easy as I remember from when I had done the 8km but I really wanted to get to the part of the run I hadn't been on before so kept on head down. Got to the part of the road where I usually turn left but carried on into the unknown, it went up hill quite a bit which was hard but ok but I had to cross the field which was a BIG hill which horses and bikes had been on which was really churned up so I basically had to walk up which was difficult as I kept sliding back! So I had my Turkish delight to keep me going! At that point 10km was not on the agenda but when I got back on the road I felt ok so kept going..... The last third of a km was hard and my legs were aching but I DID IT! 10km who would believe it!
Thank you for all your posts and support - keep on running! X
