Day 1 of Juneathon and my first ever Race For Life done.
I had a goal to do it in between 35 to 40. I crossed the finish line in 39:30. When I saw that 39 on the clock I sprinted with everything I had left.
I hadn’t run a 5k in my training. Only up to 4k and I also knew I hated running on grass but was pleased when they started talking about running on the road. However between 2/3k was grass and between 3.5/4.5k was grass and I struggled like hell. I ended up walking for a few hundred metres which I was annoyed at doing but I really find running on grass bloody tough.
But. I completed it and that’s the main thing. I want to work on my speed through juneathon and aim to be running a 5K in 30 minutes would be nice but possibly unrealistic for me I don’t know. We’ll see. It’s a goal.
