As I said I would, I’ve officially signed up to take part in the 2 Castles 10km run in June.
With that in mind, I’ve been semi-training for a while now and as of today have completed 2 10km (ish) runs outside and one on the treadmill, as well as a few shorter runs. It’ll be easier to train more now that it’s getting lighter in the evenings.
My two aims are:
- Finish the race!
- Finish in under an hour if I can
I suspect number 2 will be difficult as I’m not the fastest runner and with the hills, it’s not a course which disposes itself to fast times.
That said, my run yesterday was a 9.9 km and while it felt very slow to me, it actually took about an hour and 3 minutes, so not too far off! I felt very unergetic this morning so I was pleasantly surprised at the time. It might be that come race day, with enough training and with the energy of the race and the other runners to spur me on, I might be able to do it. I hope so, anyway.
I’d loe to get faster but while my lungs are willing, my legs aren’t! Does anyone have any tips to improve my base speed?
