I am the boss of my running. I am! It has taken a while recently but this weekend, I felt back in charge 😉
My local race was this weekend- the Tarbert TT10K and @TheWelshWookie and I ran in the inaugural ‘Dookers Doubler’ which was both the 5k and 10k.
I’ll save the race review for now, but I was pleased with how I did. My 5k time was less than a minute slower than last year, but my 10k time was over 3.5 minutes faster, so I was absolutely delighted! 😀
Here’s this year’s t shirt and medal:
Aren’t they fab?
I stretched my legs tonight with a 5k run, and I just had to wear my new shirt;) it was hot, hot, hot out there but my legs felt good. I’m feeling more confident now, as my attention turns to the Disneyland Paris half marathon next month.
Here’s a little something for today, which has helped me lots:
Have a grand week, all!
Hello, everyone, sorry for the silence last week. I had my hands full, with having three of our nephews for a few days. It was great fun!
I’m just passing through this week to check in, and let you know that I’ve somehow managed to keep on track. Although I did less running than scheduled last week, I’ve kept at it, with a lovely nine miler on Saturday. I felt it a little tough going , and I really had to remind myself that I can do this, and what’s more, I can slow down (yes, even slower than I am) and enjoy it. If that means having some walk breaks then so be it!
So, bring on this week’s training and this Saturday’s ‘Double Dooker’ event 👍🏻
