HUHM virtual 10 miles and a PB!

After a week of short runs following my HM and then 2 weeks of slow Zone 3 HR training I wasn't sure how ten miles would go down!

I needn't have worried, it was great to let my legs loose and until the last mile or so I felt pretty strong. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

After managing a decent pace for the 1st 10K I decided to stick with it if I could and push for a PB, which I'm pleased to say I managed πŸ˜…

Bottom of my left foot is aching a bit but apart from that on going issue I feel pretty good...great start to the day! 😊

Fantastic Run46 you clearly enjoyed that and worked hard for your PBπŸ™‚πŸ‘ It’s amazing how much more we can do than we first think we’re capable of!πŸ˜€

I’m glad the slow running training worked out for you, as I’m doing the same😊

Thanks David, running a decent paced 10 miles wasn't exactly in the plan at only 2 weeks in but I'll pick it back now...hopefully I won't have set myself back!

How are you finding it?

I’m not doing too badly Run46, still getting used to concentrating on my heart rate rather than distance/pace πŸ™‚ It’s harder than you’d think, isn’t it?😟 I’m also doing faster runs and intervals for a bit of variety!😊

It is isn't it, I'm starting to get used to it and have stopped feeling so frustrated when I have to walk for a bit to bring my HR down!

Good luck with it πŸ‘

Very well done, R46. Hope that achey foot is nothing too serious. Maybe take it easy for a couple of days.

Thanks Stephen, I will do...bit of a massage and some rolling on a ball has already taken place 😏

Aww thanks Cheeky, I just keep slogging on and when Roseabi asks for volunteers I'm daft enough to put my name down πŸ˜†

Thanks TailChaser, they're few and far between these days...remember the good old days when we 1st started running when virtually every run was a PB 😁

Yes!! I know exactly what you mean. I was looking at my early Parkruns the other day and there was a 3 pb streak πŸ˜… Those were the days! 😁

I thought of you today as I drove past your home town! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Woohoo!!! What a fantastic run. The low HR training has already given your legs a bit of a rest and you made the most of it pushing on for the PB!!! I'm guessing you prefer to skip the badge again? but will add you to the Woohoo board now.

Thanks Linda, I was thinking the same...too early for the lower HR training to have worked as it were but it had me starting out fresh πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜Š

I'll take the new badge please...as long as I get my HM one back when this is all over πŸ€”
