Hello! I haven't posted for a while, but just thought I'd do an update as I did the Race for Life yesterday. I graduated in Feb/March time and then had some time off with injury and despite running regularly again I have never quite got back to 5k. I thought the Race for Life might make me do it and then I'd be back in my stride but that didn't quite happen. I put myself with the joggers, but most of the people in front of me were walking, so it was impossible to run at all to start with. Then there was the most enormous hill, so I walked that too, along with everyone else! After that, I was determined to make up for it and did the rest of the course faster than I have ever run with the final three kilometres at 6 m/km and then 5.5 m/km for the final k. Too fast for me, as I felt utterly terrible at the end and rushed past the policemen handing out medals and drinks without even realising what they were!! So, it didn't quite go according to plan, and I still haven't run 5k, but I'm going to bite the bullet and just get back to the parkrun next weekend and stop thinking that I can't do it any more. I'll report back after that, because I know if I've said I'll do that I'm more likely to go! Hope all is well with the rest of you x
