10k Training

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I'm currently following a training plan to run 10k.
My last run I was scheduled to cover 2.5 miles. I set out a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to do it, that I'd have to stop and walk. Anyway, before I knew it I had reached the 2.5 miles, I thought what the hell lets keep going! I wanted to see if I could make it to 3.1 miles (5k). Well I did!
I finished in 32:00! That's a pace of 10:20 min/mile! I haven't ran that quick since sometime last year when I was running. In fact my PB for a mile is 10:05 so not far off!
I'm so proud of myself that I managed 5k with no walk breaks, only done this once before and it happened to be in exactly the same time of 32:00.
This has given me so much more confidence in my ability. I know I can achieve anything I set out to do.
I'm absolutely loving this plan and I know I am going to be more than ready to run my 10k race in May next year.

    emoticon Small victories add up to GOAL complete. Completing your first 10K will be rewarding and easy if you prepare like you are. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks guys. I definitely have total belief in myself that I can run 6.2 now. Most of it is mental, and it looks like I've finally overcome that obstacle

    Good for you!! I used to run 10K's and we used to say if you can run 3 you can run a 10K.
