As term comes to an end in primary schools across the land (cue cheers from the many teachers here), lots of our young people have that feeling where they are moving onwards and upwards, leaving the first stage of their education and moving on to big school.
I graduated back in late May.
Since then I took 3 weeks of consolidation runs to reach 5k in the second half of June. Then I did a couple of weeks 4k-4k-5k and I’m coming to the end of a week of 5k-4k-5k.
I’ve put off doing anything else largely due to lack of confidence in my ability to do 5k runs and fear of trying to run further.
I’ve recognised that for what it is - gremlins - decided today that next week will see me start the Bridge to 10k programme.
That means I’m not going to post so much on here about my runs - I don’t want to put anyone off - but I will still very much be around offering bits of advice and trying to make sure those who need it get lifted or congratulated. Sadly I will still be around being as daft as always 🤣
I’m not confident I can make 10k, but I didn’t think I’d make 1 minute in the first week, or ever reach 5k later on.
Whatever run you have next, enjoy it x
