Well i made it so feeling relieved! Boz and i headed out for our 2nd 10k tonight, along the floodlit seafront, bit more interesting than our 10k along the Cowes cycle track 2 weeks ago! bit chilly to start with but soon warmed up! niggles as usual on the 1st few k's, mainly 1 knee, but it got better as i went along! Half way turnaround point came and we were hit with a blast of sea breeze which was most refreshing! both said at the same time "oh thats nice"! but then would running into the wind slow us down? Past the pretty lit up Sandown pier and the end was in sight! the wind was a bit less brutal under the cliff path and soon we hit 8k, i told Boz of Juicyju's mantra of "work that body, punish that body!" (not sure if its quite that but something similar!) Come on then he said and we pushed on, and the last 2ks were our fastest! we made it, then i collapsed for a min on bench before warm down walk.... And the result was..... 1min 42 secs faster than 2 weeks ago, and a good steady pace overall of 6.42a km. So pleased, tired, bit achy all at once but it was not as hard as that 1st one so yay, things looking ok for 10k on 4th October!
