I did it! Something I never thought possible. I've never been a runner. But this morning I ran 13.13 miles in just over 2 hours and 35 minutes.
I've never run much further than 10miles and was hoping for an extra 2k today to push it up to 18k before the planned half marathon next week.
It was a lovely sunny morning, no wind and I decided to forget about pace and enjoy the countryside. I ran on both new and familar roads and made up the route as I ran. I found it hard after 10 miles, but kept telling myself to keep going, I could do it! By 18k my legs were tired but I pushed on, feeling excited as I realised the hm was within grasp and I could head for home. I summond a little more energy for final downhill stretch that took me across the virtual finishing line, tred but happy.
My run today is a result of the amazing training advice and tips given by experienced runners and the encouragement of everyone who contributes on these forums. Enjoy your runs 😊😊
