First running event, first 10k!

So at the weekend I was watching a ted talk about doing more of the stuff you want to do in the time you have, twas all very sensible and reasonable. After watching it I decided to do a less sensible thing and signed up for a 10k in October.

As the title suggests, it's my first 10k having only completed 5k once before in the 3 years I've on and off been running due to various setbacks. And it's also my first event. I am so excited and so nervous! I've been putting off going out running because I'm scared I'll get hurt again and have to stop even though I have the all clear from the physio.

I've got no excuses of being scared now though- training starts in earnest tomorrow!

Hope you all have a great week running and thanks for letting me get that off my chest! :-)

  • Good on you. Enjoy your training and have a great 10k run. (That's run not race!)

  • Thanks, no race to be had :-P

  • Cos I'm so slow I mean!

  • Good luck. I'm sure you'll do fine, you have loads of time to prepare ๐Ÿ‘
