I ran (jogged/walked) 10 kilometres today! [May. 10th, 2009|07:14 pm]
Kristen
1st kilometre: things went well, I was feeling good
2nd kilometre: felt a lot longer than the 1st k, but still going well
3rd-5th kilometres: each one felt longer than the previous
6th kilometre: gave up and walked for a while
7th kilometre: we were in Pollok park, and I much prefer running in parks. Things were looking much better :)
8th kilometre: Hill! more walking
9th and 10th kilometres: home stretch! I made it! Yay!!!

I don't know my official time yet. The clock was saying about one and a half hours as I ran under it, but as I was in the second last group to start, I think my actual time will come in about one hour and fifteen minutes. Not great, but not too bad :)

Good work! 10km is a significant distance to run, so that is great.

Go you for having the strength and discipline to do it. The training and the race isn't easy, and you did it.

That is a ridiculously short amount of time for 10k! Well done :)

You've done really well.
