I did it and feel great

Alligg Alligg

I just wanted to share my good news with people that understand how it feels. I did my longest training run today 10.45km and I was so pleased with myself I could have cried. I am doing my first 10km in 3 weeks and up until Friday had only done 5km. Friday I went for it and did 7.61km and so today thought I would just take it steady and see if I could do 10km. my partner has been coming with me on his bike and he was full of praise for me but it is such a big deal to me I wanted to share it.

It took me 1hr19mins which I think is not bad and I am more confident about doing it in 3weeks. If anyone is in any doubt then stick with it, take it steady and you will get there.

Thanks for listening

Great stuff!! It is always a big deal when you go further, faster, or for longer. This is the one sport where you can always do better, and it feels great when you do.

Well done for getting this far, you could try a half marathon next. I've got my first 10k in a fortnight then I'm doing 20k in 10 weeks.
