I did it…
I completed the Bristol 10k. I was ecstatic to finish the race, having trained well and hoping to see a time in the sub 60 area, I was hopping when I found out I finished in 55 mins 42 secs. Not bad when reminded by my Dad that Doctors told my parents when I was months old that I’d walk with a limp (ok I do when I’m tired) but I’d have huge difficulty running and NEVER play sports due to a muscle ‘problem’.
Anyway – The time created a problem, I was so so pleased to commit to something like this last year, yet my drive and my hunger now sees that time and think maybe, just maybe next year, after a year and half of consistent exercise, I could go quicker,who knows eh?! I’ll review my goals later this year.
My fitness programme continues to evolve. I read and see things everyday that I think I could incorporate into a workout, food plan or goal.
That is what I love about smashing a goal, very little time is spent in self congratulation, you find this thirst to go one better.
I hit the gym the day after the race this week in the mind set that my legs would be ruined but my upper body would fine, no worries. What actually happened was a picture of me struggling through a workout, more than likely physically exhausted and needing just a days rest. Lesson taken there, (thanks for the reminder Paula!)
My diet has been great and on track so I’m on course for 10-12 body fat percentage by my 30th next year – just got to keep plugging away!
So, what goals have you smashed this year & what else are you planning?
