My First 10 K Run

Monday, March 03, 2014

Sunday morning our group planned a trail run in a small island away from buzy life of city, we all met at ferry dock and crossed the river to reach the island

we made 2 groups, one for 10K run and another was 15K
as its my first 10K, i was nervous and crossed my fingers to be able to finish it, we took a small break at 5K near a nice floating market and continued our run, it seemed to be easy for everyone and i was slowest running with jelly legs, running and then slowing down to recover and then run again to catch up with people running in front

i was the last one to reach the dock, and thanks to the sports drink i carried with me i was not out of energy

i loved the run and though it was slowest as compare to others i am still proud of finishing 10K in 86 minutes, yes i really need to improve on the numbers, still on my baby steps

    That's a fantastic time, well done you! I'm new to running to so for me, I know I'm nowhere near as fast as others but just completing the distances and feeling good at the same time is the buzz that gets me through.

I've found something that totally works for me that a colleague advised me to do: run/walk intervals. I run for 5 minutes, power walk for 1 minute. And I do that the WHOLE run (I did 10 miles last weekend using this technique). I managed to get a faster average mph than if I just tried to jog the whole thing. AND I feel great at the end. Maybe give that a go if you feel you are lagging when you run with your group. emoticon
