The Start Line...

The journey to a summer attempting to set a 10km personal best has begun.....

I went out this weekend to set a base level time and was 49mins EXACTLY. Easy enough to remember, I hope. The lesson learned straight away is that I set off far too quick for my legs! Stats called me out on that straight away. 

So now it's time to improve on that. Where to start? Food? Gym? Personal trainer? Running club? Hmmm... I'll comeback to that. 

A quick screen grab of the time below for all you 'if it's not on Strava, it didn't happen' folk  😉

Challenge time. That's right, this is one of those health posts. I'll keep it short and sweet. 

 I want to know my absolute personal best for running 10km is within the next six months. 


Why am I telling you this? Well, fundamentally I see this blog being useful for two things:

1.) A handy way for me to record the things I'm doing and learning in life (I don't want to forget!) 

2.) Public accountability. That'll make me hit a few goals. I hope. 

So that said and my cards firmly on the table, there's no turning back now... where's my trainers?
