I haven't posted for a while so I thought I would just give a quick(ish) progress report.
First up, I ran my first 10k this morning. Since graduating 4 weeks ago (it seems waaaay longer than that), I have been doing one longer run per week just gradually building up distance. This culminated this morning with a 10.5k run. All of these runs have been at a gentle pace which I am really enjoying. As such my 10k PB as of this morning is a none too stellar 1:11:48. I have to say that I have no great desire to do a 'fast' 10k at this point but I have a 10k race booked in London for 9th August so I will have to do one before then.
Next week I will start my training program for my Half Marathon which is on 4th October. I have just put the finishing touches to this and it is based on a MyAsics regimen but a few extra runs added and another few changed to add some variety. I have a target for the HM of 2:10 which I think is doable, hard but doable.
Prior to that though is my second Parkrun on Saturday. As much as I am enjoying running slowly, I have to say I am really looking forward to a full-tilt effort and hope (dare I say, expect) to take a sizeable chunk off my (29:31) 5k PB.
That's about all from me, still hard to believe I would have been able to type any of the above just 3 months ago!
