This tortoise managed 10.17 miles non stop!

I was nit speedy..took me 2hr 5 mins! But what an achievement!!! it's 4 weeks to go until my HM and am starting to feel confident that I will be able to get round on the day. Not had a chance to look at my stats yet but average pace was similar to last weeks and today I did an extra mile and a half so quite happy with that.

The first 6 miles was tough as 4 of them were up a long steady incline but have to say I did enjoy the last few miles and think I could have gone on a bit further :). The smile I had as I ran down my road to the end was as big and as bright as other major milestones on the journey...20 mins non stop, 30 mins, 5k, 10k and 5 miles. Whoop whoop :) :)

Of out to meet friends for lunch later...I think I deserve some chips!!!

Happy running!!!

  • Oh we'll done Ali!

    Have been following everyone's blogs and think you're doing grand!

    Have some chips for me :)

  • I could do with the chips now rather than in a couple of hours.

  • Yes, an exceptional day for you! Wish I was up there with you - it's success stories like yours that keep me motivated and wanting to do more & more. (Even though my body would prefer me to do less and less (:->)

    Keep up the good work, and enjoy those chips. Ooooh chips. I remember chips. And salt. And the tang of vinegar. Right, that does it. Where's the nearest chippie!

  • My mouth is watering

  • Fantastic! Especially with a large part of it uphill. You are right to be proud of the achievement and should be more than ready to tackle the HM next month.

  • Brilliant work - that's such a long run! The half sounds well within your grasp now.

    Mmmm chips!

  • Well done - running non-stop for over 2 hours, that is truly amazing! Enjoy those chips.

  • Fantastic!! You sound like you are back on track & ready for this HM - chips are carbs so go for it with a clear conscience. :-)

  • I did! They were very nice.
