Last weekend I spent 2 days exploring Brisbane City. On the Sat morning I got up early to go for a run. I've entered an 8k run on 10/5 so have been gradually increasing my distance and the best I had done to date was 7k. So, I took off just expecting to run that distance not anticipating what would happen. I was running a new route along the river with great views of the city. There was so much to see, that I wasn't focusing on my distance and when I checked the distance I had reached 7k.... but wasn't ready to finish. I kept on going and before I knew it I had run 8k but was nowhere near to where I started so kept on running.... and running and when I reached 9k figured that I might as well keep going as I felt good and before I knew it I reached 10k! This was so unexpected and I was so thrilled that I done 10k...... I then had a 2k walk back to the apartment but I was walking on air by then! After a shower and breakfast I spent the day with my husband walking around Brisbane and by the end of the day had done 38,000+ steps.... I am so very proud of what I have done and love that I can share this with everyone as I know you will understand exactly how I feel about this achievement.
