Ju-Ju-β€˜s Magic 10K Plan

Week 7 Run 3

9K 🎯

2nd 10K πŸ’ͺ

Last week I achieved my first 10K (two weeks ahead of schedule) and with a fairly good time of 59:27 so today I had to prove to myself that it wasn’t a fluke!

Super happy πŸ˜ƒ to report that it wasn’t down to luck at all! I’ve just completed my 2nd 10K and shaved off a not too shabby 41 seconds! πŸ’ͺ Smashing a new PB!

My fuel? Nothing but an empty stomach and lots of pent up energy! Mixed with quite a bit of anger and despair with the state of life at the moment!

I started C25K in May and back then I wouldn’t even run for a bus 🚌 For anyone starting out - keep going!

You’ll be amazed by what you can achieve! Ignore your inner gremlins and the external negative nellies who might be quick to label you a β€˜rookie’ because you dare to be more than average. If you want and can run quicker - do it! If you’re happy to run at a pace comfortable for you - do it! Do YOU!


Happy running all! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Well PR always knew you could easily smash it. Huge congratulations on your amazing achievement. Really well done. Loved your post, straight from the heart with all the attendant comments. Hope to join you in another year 🀣 or so if I ever get off this IC. Happy running and look forward to your journey through HM and forwards πŸ‘πŸ‘.

Thanks Hareshaw-Granny πŸ™πŸ» Glad you thought I could easily smash it 🀭 I was apprehensive 😬 and did let some negative nellies get to me before I gave my head a wobble! Oh no! πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ I hope you are off the IC soon!? HM and forwards plans are brewing in the back of my mind already πŸ™Š


Of course it wasn’t a fluke! Well done for your 10K and PB πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ and for victory over those gremlins πŸ˜€

Thanks Jools2020 πŸ™πŸ» I just had to check that it wasn’t the excessive amount of coffee β˜•οΈ I’ve been drinking of late that pushed me over the line last week! 🀭
