So my fitness activities have not been the best for the past 2 weeks, at the most I have been running once a week, boohoo.
Last weekend I was talking with the office coordinator who is training for a walking marathon, actually happen this Saturday night! As my last gift to her as she embarked on this 7 to 8 hour walk was to join her for one of her works from work back home. Our home route is the same for the first 5K then we branch off.
For the first 5K, I walked with her steadily not wanted to cause any injuries before the big day. Then after the 5K mark I ‘zoomed’ off and jogged the rest of the way home.
I had not really looked at my app tracker till I got home (an hour and a half later) but I had covered 11K and burnt over 990 calories (less call it 1000 :p)
I was super chuffed, I had been so scared to even get this far, the furthest non-stop run I have done was 7K and at the 7 mark my mind went in overdrive and my legs then turned to jelly….instantly! It was the realisation that I had been running continuously for over 50 mins.
Now that I know I can run from work to home I will definitely be doing this more often! The views through the parks are amazing; I have never really appreciated it!
This fitness Friday I have definitely won the battle with my mind! Even though I did not run 10K continuously, after doing this I could so do it! #yay me!
Happy Fitness Friday! :o)
