Entered the Great Manchester 10K

Entered the Great Manchester 10k even though I haven't done 10k yet.

Should easily be able to do by May. Then its a question of speed. Am finding running slower more enjoyable than running fast. Much more relax and not so much pain. I did run 9.3k a few weeks ago but had to rest for the rest of the week due to soreness. Have since read that you should increase distance by 10% a week so will gradually increase now.

Feel much more motivated since enrolling for the 10K. Will definitely have to do more training.

You've got loads of time to increase your distance and consolidate before May. Me signing up for one in October is the main reason that I keep going at the mo (been struggling these last few weeks)...I'm determined to do it.

Good luck with the training!


10% rule is golden. It'll be great fun preparing for the 10k and I am sure you'll be ready.

Have you changed your photo? It's a lovely pic.. is it your dog?


Its my dog and running mate Gizmo. Unfortunately he doesn't like other dogs so I have to be careful to avoid dog walkers when I'm running.
