As I mentioned last month, I’m in training for the Women’s Running 10k in September so I wanted to do a quick update on my progress. I’m staying consistent, running at least 2 miles 3 times a week, I try and do a longer run at the weekend and am now up to 4 miles. I don’t wear my Garmin every time I run because it’s nice to just go out and enjoy it but I am getting a bit quicker, I did my last timed 5k in 26.38.
I filmed this video to show where I run and how nice it is just to be outside exploring where I live. I have found so many hidden treasures just from trying new routes near where I live and when I was out running this weekend I found a community garden project just over a mile from my house. I’d love to be able to grow what I eat so I spent the rest of the day digging myself out a plot and getting some seeds and plants into the ground. Running never fails to put me in a good mood, even when it exhausts me and I think part of that is because I get to enjoy where I live so if you want to see, press play below.
