I was undecided about doing the race today as my knee is only just feeling okay now and I hadn't run for a week but then I thought why not go for it, I could always walk round!
I got a bit of a surprise when I found that there were only about 6 people there not with running clubs, everyone looked very professional and it was very quickly apparent that I was going to be one of the last to finish. Also I did think it was a bit mean of the organisers to bring the 5k and 10k runners together for a stretch - the 10k runners were flying past me and they'd already run 8km! Lots of them were lovely and shouted out encouragement to us slowcoaches though.
So I ran and walked whenever the knee started to complain and I got all the way round, I wasn't too impressed with a time of 39 minutes 40 seconds but as my mum pointed out, that's a lot faster than I could have managed it back in February when I started C25K. My knee seems to be ok too, which is good seeing as I have the 5k race for life to look forward to in 2 weeks!
