Breaking News!!!!

Guys n gals, guess what??!!!???!!!! It's 18:47 here in UK land and I just ran my first EVER 10k!!!!!!!!! TEN KILOMETRES!!!!! Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I am sooooooooooooo buzzing!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's 6.2 miles!!! GET IN!!!!!! Sure, it took me 71 minutes which is a bit rubbish but heck, I can improve on that!!! For now, suffice it to say that I BLOODY WELL DID IT!!!!!!! And more importantly, my wonderful legs totally did me proud. Post-injury, they carried me every inch of that 10k. They did not collapse, or hurt. I am not in horrendous pain. I can feel I've worked but now I know the right stretches to do I can efficiently help my bod combat the pain.

Please remind me of this post when I'm having a moan about my weight. Right now I'm pretty happy with how I am!!!!!

Yay for running!!!!!

Way to go! Seventy-one minutes ain't bad at all. (It's what I did mine in. :-) ) Don't you just love the feeling afterwards!

Yayayaya, Lizzie! You rocked that 10k - you inspire me to at least address my running fear & impatience with it. I might just do it someday after all. Congrats, doll!
