Finally crossed the imaginary barrier of the 10k!! It was only by 0.5 k but it was beaten. It’s been a while since I’ve done 10k but my Asics half marathon training wanted it done on Sunday. I’m going out for a very rare girlie night out on Saturday so will be in no fit state on Sunday 😂 I waited for it to cool right down and out I went, I did it using heart rate zone 3 and decided to try a gel as I went. The whole run was really slow so much so that i feel it will take forever and a day to complete the half but according to my plan, the speed will come later in the programme but I completed the whole run with slow breathing in and out of my nose, no panting or getting out of breathe and no mouth breathing. I tried the gel but by the time I remembered I had it, it was warm, thick and sickly so threw half in the bin. I have got another, a different flavour which I have now put in the freezer so hopefully it will still be cold when needed on my next long run. Overall, I’m glad I managed the run comfortably but gutted with my time ,surprising really as my aim is just to finish the half but now and again seemed swayed by my finish time!!
