I went out today with no idea of where to go (again) or with any distance or time frame in mind. Started running though and soon I was running through the centre of Tunbridge Wells, when it occurred to me how many roads there are that I have no idea where they go. And that was it. My goal for the run was to explore. I felt good today and decided to take it slow and just listen to my music which was fun. This is where I'd like to introduce a new feature...
Running song of the week:
I would like you guys to help me come up with good running music for when I finally have to conquer this mission. Something bassy, dancy, cheesy, jazzy, anything that'll keep me
But anyway, today was brilliant as I mentioned earlier. My breathing wasn't a problem, my legs weren't tired and most importantly it wasn't too cold or raining.
I wore a much better choice of pants as I'm sure you were all dying to know; although I may invest in some 'actual' running pants in order to put an end to the chafing between my thighs. (After a quick googling, it appears that these are called compression shorts. If anyone has any experience in this subject, please contact me with some advice!)
I just kept running and running down roads I'd never seen before (until I got a little lost) and ended up breaking into double figures in mileage!
Today, I am proud to have run 10.34 miles (That's 16km!). Feel like I'm starting to get there now!
Here is my route if you care that much.
Route for Monday Week 10: 10.34 miles, 95 minutes.
Estimated Marathon Completion Time: Probably somewhere around 5 hours 42 minutes and 56 seconds
So yeah, pretty happy folks! Decided to celebrate with this beast:
