Just thought I would share with you all, that I set a new PB last night - 10K in 56.07 - dead chuffed!!
No way! Get in sunshine, I knew you could do it ........ am I to assume this is the first time under 60 minutes?
Yes it is, wasnt so long ago it was taking me 1 hour 10
And did you run the whole thing or have a sly walk in the middle of it ....... cmon its OK to be honest here .........
No hand on heart I ran the whole thing
Was this in a race?
No just out on my own
Pretty good. Imagine what you could do in a race!
Thank you, I am doing a 6 mile race in March
Good work groder, now you've got to aim for under 50.
And remember, dont keep just doing 10k's and trying to get faster ........ include 12 /15ks in your training even at a slower pace and you're 10k pace will naturally pick up.
Thanks for the advise, it does help that I gave up smoking a year ago and have lost almost 2 stone in weight!
What you should do is have a passport sized picture of you when you were two stone heavier with a fag hanging out of your mouth and take it with you whenever you go running. Then when you are about to hit the wall and think 'Oh god, I cant go on any further', I want you take out the picture, look at it and think 'Is this who I am? Is this what I want to go back to?'
My god, I should become a personal motivator or something, Im really good at this.
Ha ha - I like your style!!!
