I’m training for the Bridge to Brisbane, 3 September 2012.
I’ve run 86 kilometres in the last month. It still hurts. About a kilometre into each run, my legs are on fire, and I still struggle to run the entire 5-6K. I’m feeling a little discouraged, flat this week. But then I look at my times for my 6K course and 10K course, and I’m doing okay…improving slowly. So I think it’s less to do with how my body is coping and more of a mental thing I need to push through. Keep going. Keep trying. Always onward.
On the up side, one of the things I love about running is being outside in the fresh air. I sleep better, rarely get headaches anymore, and I just feel better.
These photographs are from my 10 K running route. Glorious! If you’re on Instagram, you can follow my training under the hashtag #kellyruns, profile beafunmum.
I think I can, I think I can…I’m almost half-way in my fundraising efforts for World Vision. If you can help me get there, just head over to my fundraising page. Or even just tell me to keep going. “Keep running Kelly!” I need a little boost this week.
