On Sunday I managed my first 10k run. I have only ever done 5k runs before so this was a bit of a toughie. It was hard but not as horrible as I thought it would be, my legs lasted but I looked like a giant patchy strawberry!
I could not run or even jog the whole 10k without stopping (a lot) to power walk so my time was shocking however I made it to the end before it went dark…. just!
I ran along the canal path so the trail was completely flat for the whole 10k. The thought of running up hills is rather scary and makes my legs feel like jelly just thinking about it! I ran all the way to my nan’s where I had cup of tea and some cake – perfect!
Thanks to my dad I am learning to pace myself. Learning to run slowly is harder then it seems, well for me anyway, however with running slower I am running for longer and improving my times little by little.
Yesterday I bought some new shiny trainers so I a hoping they will give me an extra boost on tonights 5k run in the sunshine.
