Well what a great run this morning.
I've had a couple of twinges in my back muscles this week after last weeks first 10k, so I did a couple of runs this week at mid pace instead of the usual pyramid and tempo and back already a lot better, amazing if you listen to your body and vary things a bit.
So today I went out not really knowing how far I'd run, but after 3-4K I thought I'd probably try for 10K, when I got to 8.9K ish I looked at my watch and had about 7 mins until the hour, so I thought I'd have to give it a go at upping the pace and try getting a 10K in under an hour, it was hard that last K (and fun) but i did it and now have a PB of 59m32s for 10k. I can't wipe the smile off my face.
And what's even better I now have loads of calories to spend at my mums when I visit her today, she likes to look after me with nice food....yummmmmmmm.
I really can't believe that 10 months ago I hadn't even ran for 60 seconds!
Enjoy your weekend runs.
