I went out for a run with my Dad around Cambridge. In the end we ran about 12.2km, we did take some walking breaks but this is the biggest run I’ve done so far. Now I am able to start pushing for running further between walking breaks and eventually hit that 10k goal

I went out for a run tonight, and when I got home I checked on gmaps pedometer and it was 10k!!! In truth I walked a little of it, but mostly I ran. I don’t count this as completing this goal yet though, cause the aim to compete in a 10k race and get a good time. So now at least I’ve ran 10k in one run but now need to start working on time and trying not to have walking breaks.
I feel really good and ready for a good nights sleep now, and have a nice blister on my foot as a souvinour of my run (my feet got wet)
Have done another 5.5km run yesterday, am fighting the urge to do another one tonight, but further. I’ll do an update again after I’ve ran, but am planning to go farther this time.
I’ve done 3 5.5km runs in the last ten days, and I feel good about it.
My knees are hurting a bit, but I think this is just because I’ve not ran in a while.
My aim was always to run the 10k in less than an hour. So at this rate I’ll be doing 10k runs within a month or so, and then I can have about a month before the race to focus on improving my time.
I’ve been referred to a physio after seeing my GP this morning. I get knee pains after about a mile or so, and need to get that sorted before I can continue training for a 10k. I know I’ll be able to easily run a 10k with some training once my knee problem’s sorted.
I’ve got until April to prepare for this. I did do an 8k run the other day but did walk some of it too. As long as I complete the 10k in less than an hour then I’ll be happy.
