So this was the week that I managed to complete my first full 10k!
Here’s the breakdown…
Saturday 11th March
I missed training on Friday but managed to force myself out eventually on Saturday.
I set off too quickly AGAIN (one day I’ll sort out my pacing properly) but was really pleased with my final pace of 5’26” per km.
I ran out of steam after 6km though and proceeded to go home to get some rest.
Monday 13th March
The day that I managed to hit my 10km target!
Even better, it was in under an hour at a pace of 5’52” per km.
STILL slightly too quick over the first km but it is closer to what I had planned and allowed me to continue over the longer distance.
My only disappointment with this run was the fourth km.
The route which I run includes a level crossing. On this occasion I was interrupted by a train and had to divert up and over the station’s bridge to avoid having to wait.
On the positive side, I hope that means that I can still make improvements to quicken my times further.
I’m looking forward to the challenge.
Until next time…
