I’m still not what I would consider, for myself, fit. I am eating more healthy and engaged in more healthy practices, though. I’ve no hesitation in giving myself a pat on the back for that.
Today I was expecting to run a half-marathon, but with recent events and upcoming travel commitments I didn’t feel compelled to take part. I haven’t trained appropriately, despite initial enthusiasm.
I can run a 5k in around 28 minutes, a 10k in around 58 minutes, and I’ve put a few good 12k runs in up on Burbage Moor where I feel much more at home. My next steps will be about improving consistency rather than distance – a different approach than I’d planned when I signed up for a half-marathon I was ill-prepared for.
Update to follow again at the end of August.
