In passing today, I was offered a place in Windsor half, in September. Now this is a very achievable goal, but also remember I am yet to run 5K without stopping.
With this in mind I set off in the drizzle to see how far I could do with minimal 'Jeffing'. Attached my headphones, choosing a suitable playlist, actually 'Don't Stop me now' was probably a bit fast for a first track, but it got me started and I was soon off and running.
I like to set myself small 'distance' goals and today extended one of my sections to the longest distance yet.
Note to self - make sure you have water, either with you or in the car for when you finish. Despite the drizzle there was a number of runners making their way around the park, some faster than other but all having a go.
I saw some great #MondayMotivation today - "Run when you can, Walk if you have to, Crawl if you must; Just never give up." this kept me going as I went around the park.
Now seeing as I need to do 13.1 miles by the end of September, this week the distance goes up to 5K.
I am still seeking a 5K event for the end of June, I'd like something special as my first race, my colleague and coach Sam2.0 has said if there isn't an official event then she will get me a medal from the office.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
