Last week was my eighth week of 10k training, which means I’ve 2/3 of the way there! I’ve been away from the blog for a while; here’s what I’ve been up to exercise-wise:
I only have a month left until my 10k, which seems really soon and really far away at the same time. I’ve done really well with my running and am quite proud of myself. I’ve followed my running plan (haven’t skipped any runs!), and my pace has been consistent with an upward trend. I’ve had a few bad runs, but the overwhelming majority have left me feeling fantastic.
With four weeks to go until my race I’m getting slightly nervous. I think I may have overdone the how many weeks I needed to train – eight weeks probably would have been enough. That being said, running is a huge mental game for me. My legs are a lot stronger than I ever expected – I just need to make sure I remember that!
