So i finished my first 10K. Now it wasn't easy and when the time got broken down it was the first three miles at an average of 11.01 per mile. But then my hip started hurting and my knee was aching so my last three were closer to 14 per mile. I ended at an average of 12.09 minute per mile. Not great, but I finished, and for that I have to be happy.
What upset me was when I see the picture from the five mile mark. I look tired, so much bigger than I think I am. You can tell I'm not running, I'm just trying hard to put one foot in front of the other. But isn't that what the whole point is. I didn't quit, I crossed the finish line, so why in my head do I feel like I failed.
