10k in hell

Well i had my 10k run today, i did it in a time of 52:45mins. Not bad, but still over what i had set myself. I wanted to do it in around 45-50 mins. I think i went out to fast in the start, as i was right near the front, where all the fast people were. I just had to get into my groove and sit there. Hard though when you are being overtaken by ever imaginable person in the race. I felt as though i was coming last, well at least a race for last. It was good to know that i didn’t come in last. My mum and Dad came down to watch me run, which was nice of them. It is my first race since i did the Sun Herald Olympic run back last year. I got a time of 56:45min in that one. So i guess that i have to look at the positive side of things, i did beat my previous time, but not by much. I want to enter the City to Surf 2005 now, that is a 12k. If i can do that in the same/similar time i would be over the moon. I mean, damn i was hoofing it, but i need to work on technique a bit as well. Apparently i don’t use my full stride. Things can get better. All my friends say that the time that i did it in was really good, but alas im not happy. Cause i know that i can do better!! Well i have to get ready for my 12k run on Wednesday. I wouldn’t mind having some company, so give me a shout if you feel upto it, by posting a comment. I must be one of those people that show grit on there faces as i got comments from every marshall, giving me encouragement. I love getting encourgement, you feel so special when it happens. 🙂

Run like the wind, i know someone famous said that, but boyi was running like a rainy day, champions

    Nice work on the 10K mate, i’ve just been building up my fitness since good old glandy last year. I’m prob doing about 3K 5-6 times a week at the moment and playing squash once a week too! Loving it mate, so i’m sure you can do better, but look on the bright side, at least you can do it!!
