Today I managed to run 6.5 miles – this is the furthest I’ve run in 4 years – so I now have a 10k run back in the bag!
I’ve been back into running since July and in the last few weeks been doing a couple of 5k runs a week and then managed a 5-miler which I was over the moon about as I didn’t think I was ever going to get past 4 miles. However as I have been told – “it’s all in the mind” – I decided this week that I was going to do 10k – I was determined to do it – and I knew I could if I put my mind to it – so off I went out in the rain this morning – and I did 6.5 miles – so happy and proud of myself!!
Last weekend was good for me too – I did the 5k Markeaton Parkrun which was great and I got a personal best for that too – so it has been a good week.
Oh and I’ve cycled to work and back – 33 miles in all – so proud of myself this week!
