Today was a milestone. I've been running 5k for a few weeks now, and this week took the step of registering myself for Park Runs. I'm so glad I did!! Even though I went out for a meal and a couple of drinks last night (I was as sensible as I could be, drinking water with my meal and not eating too much!!), I made it out of bed on time. I had the support of a friend who drove us there and showed me the ropes. It was a lovely, sunny morning. Perfect. I felt nervous and excited before setting off. I kept telling myself to run at a steady pace, despite lots of people overtaking me!!! It paid off though, as I overtook quite a few of them later on. I was happy I stuck to my own plan. On the last km I found myself playing 'cat and mouse' with a fellow runner. She'd walk, I'd overtake, then I'd walk and she'd overtake, so we ended up chatting, sharing that we were both first-timers! I haven't got my official time yet, but I think I did it in about 35 mins. I'll take that, gives me plenty of scope to get a pb next time!! Feeling on top of the world now, not sure how I can top this feeling over the weekend!! x
