Feeling extremely pleased (and knackered) having completed my first ever 10k run this morning.
I graduated at the end of March/ beginning of April.
I had a Race for life booked for June, so carried on running 3 times a week using week 9 of the couch25k podcasts for the music mainly, covering a distance of at least 5k each time, but not much more.
Then after the race, I started building up my distance and my pace, listening to the stepping stones, stamina and speed podcasts, often back to back.
I'm still running 3 times a week, with one longer run and the other two 5k or more.
Up until this morning the furthest I'd run was 8k, but it felt right, so I went for it!
I can't tell you how thrilled I am I feel fantastic.
We all say it, but if I can do it, so you can you. A positive attitude, a handful of almonds and Laura counting 1-2-3-4 is all you need! lol
I'm going to sleep well tonight (but with a big smile on my face)
