Have been struggling to get out 3 times a week as I had planned and have been just about squeezing in 2, a combination of school prize givings , end of term concerts etc and the procrastination gremlins taking full advantage. Got out tonight with the intention of repeating an 8 k route that I ran on Friday . It was a bit drizzly but I made it out the door and got into my rhythm nicely, the rain got a bit heavier but I kept on and took a slightly longer route to avoid a nice grassy track that would have soaked my trainers, got to 5 k and decided to try and speed up a bit , turned down the lane towards my house and my app said 8 k but I felt I had plenty more in the tank so detoured across a field into the cricket pitch/ park and ran a few laps round , got to 9 k , did another lap and headed out to go home by the road just to hear my app announce 10 k as the rain was pretty heavy by this point I ran to the bottom of the road and walked the last few minutes. 10.3 km , my longest ever run,so feeling pretty good just now! Still in shock that the me that struggled to run 3 minutes in week 3 , can now run for over an hour without stopping!
