That’s the 10K completed and very proud of myself for doing it in 71:44, not the fastest 64 year old but not too shabby to say I have only been running out doors since the beginning of February.
Prior to that I had been running on a treadmill for 3 months, as anyone will tell you running on a treadmill and running outside are totally different.
Since the 10K I have had 2 runs this week that was a short tempo run and the Saturday Barnsley Parkrun, I am please with my performance in the parkrun, I managed to get up the hills on the third lap without coming to a virtual standstill and I managed to put in a sprint.
I felt great after today’s run and I felt like I had put in a good time
The results for the parkrun and my times by the mile are: –
A new PB of 34 minutes and 124th out of 250
Monday sees the start of the new training program for my next challenge, which is a 10 mile race taking place in Richmond Park London. It is on the 4th of June which is 5 weeks away. I have opted to increase the intensity of the training as another challenge.
We will have to see how it goes as I don’t want to burn myself out.
