Was hoping for 9km but ran out of road as it were. Feeling good. Average pace 5:51 which for me is pretty good! Also did some hills πŸ™

I’d just like to say it’s not easy. I’m but no means super fit but like most on here I started from pretty much nothing. I still struggle with little aches and pains. I did struggle with my breathing but, finally as I got fitter got it under control. I do want to probably get to 10km. But I’m not rushing to it. If I get there I get there. Just being out in the morning in the fresh air is great!!

Happy running everyone!

Absolutely. I could have pushed for 9km but i don’t think people always realise how long it take to run any sort of distance. Have you been out this morning?

Better a week off this week than weeks/months off if I run too soon. But I’m counting the days ...... 7 at the moment! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thank you! It’s hard work. But as people say it does pay off. You will get there, then 6 before you know it you will be doing 10k!!

Oh i dont know about that... it still feels like i cheated somehow cos it is still hard. I am not confident yet!

But i would love it if you are right and it remains to be seen cos i wont stop running. So. If there is progress i will be very very happy!

Happy running fastdave!

I don't know what your easy pace is, but you will find it much easier to reach 10k by dialling it back a bit.
