I feel epic!

Sorry for stealing a popular ads slogan but that's how I feel. I set off today in the sunshine for a "short easy run"! And the bit of sunshine must have been shining on my stopwatch because I just kept running and I had 2 PB's in one run! I ran a route I had done once before (a practice for my recent 10k race) of 9.2k which I did in 1hr 16mins today I did it in 1hr 5mins! So I kept running so I could compare it with my 10k time of 1hr16mins and ended up doing 10.27k in 1hr14mins:-) :-) :-) I started running last year at 61 and had to stop until an angina scare was sorted so couldn't run again til January this year and signed up for a 10k to motivate myself to train and I can recommend it. I havent looked back since and its given me such a buzz I've decided to train for a half marathon and hopefully the London. The moral of my long post is set a goal and reach for it, don't let age or suspected illness hold you back (within reason) I thought I was silly to think I should aim to get faster at my age but within my age group I can so go for it!!
