5 weeks ago, after annoying an oldÂ achilles problem while out running, I really thought I would not be able to do the
I stopped running but carried on with my walking hoping that maybe this would keep me fit enough to run the 10km with no training.
My usual running distance is 4 miles, and last week I did a 4 mile run to see how I felt,the day after myÂ achilles ached quite a bit and I was still unsure on what to do.
This morning I was up early rubbing Nurofen gel onto my achilles thinking I would just run it gentle and set a time for the next 10km.
It was perfect running conditions dry and cold 🙂
I expected a time of 66 mins (with training ) so imagine my delight when myÂ actual time was 63 mins, and this was with no running for 4 weeks 🙂
MyÂ achilles did ache but never got any worse !
I believe 2000 runners took part,its a great flat course and the crowd really cheered you on, just a shame myÂ photographer is away walking the south west coast path , so I have no photos of me coming across the finish line 🙁
The official results are out and I came 1112 out 2000 which I think is very respectable 🙂
Now its on to the nextÂ Challenge which is a 26 mile walk in 2 weeks time 🙂
and I will be looking for another 10km to do later in the year !
