Caerphilly 10k & Weekly training recap: Mon 15th June – Sun 21st June

We did it!!!

We did it!!!

We crossed the line together this morning at our first ever 10k (The Caerphilly 10k) with a chip time of 1 hour 13 minutes and 5 seconds!!! We managed to beat our mini goal of finishing in under 1 hour 15 minutes, so we are super happy!! We’ll be sure to post a full race recap later in the week!

After this mornings race, my nike+ app is looking like this:

Woop woop 100 miles of training completed!
Woop woop 100 miles of training completed!

I cannot believe we have covered over 100 miles since our running journey began back at the start of the year. It feels great and we are actually looking forward to the next 100!

Speaking of training, our Wine and Dine Half Marathon training plan officially starts on Tuesday 7th July, so we will be taking the next couple of weeks easy with some recovery runs before we ramp up the schedule ready for Disney in November! In the mean time we still have the Swansea Bay 10k to look forward to in September, and we are both determined to shave some time off the PB that we set today on what will be a much flatter and more familiar course!

Happy running everyone!!
