One ticked off the bucket list - 10k DONE!

Thanks for all the advise last week :) I decided to take the bull by the horns, and run/walk if needed a whole 10k, just to see how far it was (I was up to 6k running anyway...) Did it! OK, I walked a fair bit in the last couple of kilometres, but I finished, with a time of 1 hour, 12 mins. Not going to break any records, but something to build on.

I'm ridiculously pleased with myself :)

  • That is fantastic & you've beat my first time for a 10k by about 12 mins too.

    Great job well done you! X ☺

  • Excellent time. You must have walked fast. My first 10k was 1:11 running only.

  • Same here!! My time was 1:11 too😊

    Well done Mum of 3 👏

  • And deservedly so. Well done.

  • Great run! Now you'll be wondering what all the fuss was about last week. We knew you could do it.

  • Nice one, well done! I did my first 10km yesterday too in 1:13, didn't walk any but it was pretty hilly - when you build up to running it all you're going to be ace! I love it when you get that moment of 'oh what the heck, I'm just going to see how far I can go'.

  • You are all lovely!

    Congrats to you too Grubby and Caroline - such an achievement :)

  • well done, that is a great time :) you should be "over the moon" and rightly so :)
