This morning it was seriously cold, like my toes are numb in my trainers cold*, but I had signed up for a 5km Movember run so by golly I was going to do it.
I turned up at Battersea Park and surrounded by fellow runners (some in quite clever costumes I may add) we set of at 10am.
The race was two laps of Battersea park and I must say, never having been there before, it was pretty for the most part. Knowing I had run 5km easy the day before meant I was more then determined to finish and with a good time at that.
Ignore the timing above, I forgot to turn the Nike app off when I finished, so my official chip time was actually …26.49mins! I’m pretty pleased with that. I know I didn’t come anywhere near the front of the pack but just knowing how much better I am doing since I begun is worth it.
I’m hoping that by this time next year I will be sub 25 or doing 10km which is my next target. Any advice?
*yes I know it is due to get a lot colder
