The one where I finally get into double figures
After one month and one day of running I managed 10k tonight. I am so chuffed with myself! It wasn’t quick, and it certainly wasn’t pretty but I did it.
I found the 4th and 5th kilometres the hardest, particularly as there was a steep hill to run up but after that I seemed to do OK.
My planning of the route was a bit poor and I needed to run round in circles for the last 1.5k to make sure I did it.
I must admit I was ready to give up at 8.5k but I carried on. What the neighbours must have thought seeing me run round the pond seven times … just to make the distance.
I have foolishly signed up for a half marathon in 3 weeks time. Tonight I sort of believed I might be able to do it. I realise that it is more than 10k … but tonight was a start.
I just need to believe in what I’m doing … and then anything can be possible!!!
