10 Kilometre Run

10 Kilometre Run

At work on Tuesday, my work colleague Dave said to me "What are you doing on Sunday?" I thought he would be doing something at his church or something.
"Well I'm working night shift Saturday night" was my reply.
Dave told me that he was entering a 10k run and wondered if I was interested in entering. Crikey! That's late notice. I've wanted to enter a proper, official race ever since I started running a couple of years ago, but until now, I'd never got round to it. There was the consideration of working the night before, but I thought "What the heck, I'll go for it". As it happened, I'd forgotten that I'd swapped a shift and didn't have to work nights last night in any case. So it all worked out perfectly.
The weather this morning was pretty much ideal. I felt confident at this distance, knowing that I'd run 10 miles a couple of weeks ago. I was aiming for under 1 hour. Once we set off, I ran at quite a pace for the first kilometre moving through field and leaving Dave and Richard (his son) behind. It was a bit of a different experience running a route I'd never done before and I found it hard to pace myself. I managed to keep going without stopping once and finished with a sprint at the end. What a great day!
Time : 55 mins.

I'm WELL pleased
Next time, I'll do this with more notice and organisation on my part. It would be good to run for charity, particularly the one I work for. Enjoy the video folks.
