Thistle

For the first time since before my operation in March I managed 13.5km today!

Within that I had 10km in 1:04 – just 7 minutes off of my personal best! Hopefully, if I keep up the effort I can manage that in the coming weeks. Especially as it involved stopping for this shot of the thistle that was growing in an embankment along the way.

At the end of the run I even put in a 6 minute fast interval and managed 5:30 for 1km.

My next major distance goal is 21 km, a half marathon. Not sure yet if I’m going to actually enter one, but I want to be able to run the distance! I don’t care about the time, I just want to complete it 🙂 With any luck before the end of September… Fingers crossed!
