11-Jul-13 Warm up for 10k…

In Blog, Personal, Sports on July 11, 2013 at 8:06 am

So after several weeks of Park Runs and training, last night I completed the 5.6k JP Morgan Challenge at Battersea Park with a number of my work chums from SThree.

Some would say conditions were ideal, as for the rest of us amateurs, it was extremely warm and therefore a tad draining.

After a couple of pints the previous night to ensure I was fully hydrated, I felt I was feeling in good shape; that was until I started running!

Over the last few weeks, I seem to have been struggling from a stomach pain on and off, and last night, I had to bear the brunt of this for all 3 and half miles, which was not a pleasant experience.

Saying that, I dug deep and completed my run in 30 minutes and 50 seconds meaning I missed my target by 50 seconds!

Saying that, I have to be pleased with this and hopefully this sets me up well for the British 10k I am completing on Sunday; also with some of my work colleagues. Please feel free to sponsor me at the following link, as raising money for SOS Children’s villages.

Well done to all of our team from SThree who gave up their time to run last night whether that be to get a great time or simply get round; superb effort!
