I started running years ago, only for a short period. Struggled to complete a 5k, slowly improved then just kinda stopped, running wasn’t my thing. Started again in Jan 2020, mainly to improve fitness for my work medical – not that I needed to to pass, but just to be better. Slowly improved and managed a 5K. Pretty pleased I continued, although back then I really didn’t enjoy and ran to finish quickly rather than distance. I was running too fast and that’s not the right way. Slowly adapted my running, achieving a distance rather than time – run slower to become faster… i know!
I progressed, have met some great people on Insta that have helped and inspired. Completed in virtual Ironman club (defo not ironman distances!!! ) enjoyed those and did reasonable well, but its self improvement as someone will always be better than you.
Followed a 10k training plan and managed a good 10k so was really pleased with that. MIx my running with trails, which is preferable tbh – surface and scenery and you can have a little walk lol while admiring the views. Suffered runners knee in august…year after breaking my collar bone :-/ A set back, but physio and i’m almost back.
I have ideas of Triathlon so working towards that.
