So, I finally ran another race. In short, I have been loving my runs with my club (If anyone is thinking of joining a club DO IT – best thing I’ve done!) and lots of people from the club were taking part in the Great Eastern Run, so I signed up too.
With limited long run training, I knew I had to pace it sensibly. So here are the highs and lows;
- Ran with my cousin Katie and one of my friends Vicki from Run Club
- First outting in my club vest #TeamBalancise
- Loved the FLAT course.
- Paced it well, felt strong all the way round.
- Lack of toilets meant I was VERY close to going in a bush – instead started the race with full bladder.
That’s about it with lows, I really did enjoy the race. I wasn’t worried about time, I just wanted to get round and finish strong! I think my time was about 2.15, nowhere near a PB, but sometimes runs are not just about targeting PBs.
How’s everyone’s running going?
