Somehow I managed to do a 10km run with just 3 practice runs under my belt (3.33 Miles – Longest).
Total training mileage = 7.99 Miles
Total race mileage = 6.34 Miles
So I almost did the same number of miles in the race as I did TOTAL for training! I really wish I was better at organising myself, motivating myself and just generally sticking with running as I felt really good after the race and felt that after each run I could feel myself adjusting to the running way of life. Would love to continue that running on a far more consistent basis.
Maybe that is why I am considering getting involved with Running Down Dementia – https://runningdowndementia.org/ – My Grandpa had Dementia, and although I am fairly terrible at fundraising, I completely forgot about it for the Southampton 10km, you can donate here if you wish (not sure how long the page stays live after the event), it may be a way that I can raise both awareness and some much needed funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK (I will keep you posted if I sign up – maybe).
Anyway, this is just a short post to say, yes, I did it, 10km in 30 days complete. Time breakdown below.
If you’re signed up to, or considering that 100km before end of August for Dementia let me know in the comments.
