Thursday's 10k Day

One of the MANY benefits of being retired (and there's lots!)is that I get to go running more or less whenever I want to. I don't have to fit a run in between other things. So I can take advantage of better conditions when they come along.

This morning's weather was wet and cold but there was no wind. Add to that, I'd tied up my shoe laces properly this time, so I didn't have to stop to retie them as I did during my last 10k run You'd think I was a novice :(

These more favourable conditions meant that I knocked about 5 mins. off my previous time! Which was even better because I wasn't trying to beat it. I just wanted to finish today. It would have been enough. Mind you, I think fuelling up at 7.00 a.m. on Linda's carrot cake might have had something to do with it too!!

Linda's Carrot Cake!

Anyhow, not only will I have February's Virtual Running Co. 10k medal coming soon, I've eaten a little bit further into the 2016 Virtual Runner UK 1,000 Challenge. 12% done now. (Evidence above)

Altogether, a good morning's work!
