Went and did the brighton marathon 10k race today. What a great day. This is my first race since starting this running malarkey. I so enjoyed it. The atmosphere was amazing and the support from the crowd and all the volunteers was amazing too.
So we were probably the last ones starting as had to queue for loos for ages. So was feeling a little worried that we would finish last too. So running along the streets of brighton and we starting catching up with the rest of the 10kers and then overtaking too. Managed to go out a little fast to start off with but managed to mantain it and even managed a pb 5k 33.29 mins. Which I am elated about. So had to do a couple of little walk breaks and water. So the last 2/3k managed to run steadily with a great sprint finish which I dont know where that came from but I did it. So my first 10k done 1.09 mins. Well pleased with that. Even got a pb 6.54 average k. So all in all today was such a great day. Such a buzz and so proud of myself. I only started running about 7 months ago.
So what to do next. I think another 10k race is on the cards, but where and when is the question?
Happy running all. I am taking a couple of days off now, then back to it to break my new trainers in I got for mothers day xx
