Day 27 - Progressing
- Sep 10th, 2016 at 6:24PM
All runs completed this week didn't get round to the strength exercise on Thursday but will be sure to do tomorrow. Diet has been a bit haphazard - sometimes life just a gets in the way.
Today's 9.5km run was done on a treadmill, overall I was pleased with how it went. The first 5km were a cruise but I knew mentally I would struggle between 5-7km so I turned up the music and kept myself distracted by giving myself small goals to reach during this bit. Once I hit 7km I felt like I was on the home stretch and the idea of completing 9.5km motivated me to the end. I completed in 54:53.
This is the furthest I have run in about four years. When we started this program the prospect of 9.5km felt unacheivable but here we are.
I missed last weeks task so I will use the slogan on my tshirt in this weeks location photograph to make up for it ... Definitely felt like the man of steel stepping off that treadmill after today's run despite the bleeding nipple, oops!
