My running week (19)

As a new runner, the most important thing about running was actually being able to run, once I discovered that I could do that, the most important thing became the bling! The bling and improving how I run. Not just working on increasing distance and improving pace, but becoming more aware of my posture and how I move, trying to relax into it a bit more.

But it is great to complete challenges and earn medals.

In April, I completed the London Marathon distance and did my first ever 10k, both challenges were awarded with a shiny medal.

The London Marathon one is a very iconic representation of a soldier of the Queen’s Guard and has a fabulous Union Flag ribbon.

The 10k Time to Run medal shows runners surrounded by a clock face.

This week’s numbers…

  • 5 runs
  • earliest run 6.30am
  • latest run 8.30pm
  • total distance 17 miles (27.6 km)
  • longest run 4.5 miles (7.2 km)
  • Miles for Mind: I have completed over 24 miles of my 50 mile goal

Have a great week 🙂
