10k training - run 1 done

I started my 10k training on Monday with a 3 mile run which I did on my treadmill at home. My darling 14 year old son came in just as I was finishing my run and I was dripping with sweat and said "Mum you look a bit hot, may I suggest you drink some water" - bless!!

Today is a rest day and tomorrow I can either rest or do a 30 min brisk walk, however I have just received my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD (which I thought I could do as cross training) so might have a go at that instead. Then Friday is a 3.5 mile run and Sunday a 4 miler.

I also found out that my friend at work has also signed up for the same 10k as me but she has done a few half marathons and a full marathon in the past so much more experienced. I might be able to wave as she passes me.

It's good to have something to focus on, will keep you posted on my progress.

Well done, morningglory!! Best wishes for your next runs!!

Keep Running!! :-)



Oooh, how exciting! Deffo keep us posted.

Love your son's comment - at least he's paying attention.

I know that you will totally equal your friend.

Mind you that 'shred' is brutal! Let us know how you get on?


Such a sweet son! We have a 14 year old daughter that I could probably be passed out next to the treadmill and she would never notice. ;-) Sounds like the run was great and enjoy the DVD! Gayle
