Just ran my first 10k

I started running for the first time this summer. At first I did 2-3 km runs which were kinda rough, but I quickly improved and just did my first 10k today! 🥳 I'd say doing lots of short runs in the beginning was worth it since it built the foundation, and jump from that to 10k was pre easy actually (~3k → 5k → 10k). I was supposed to do a 7k run but accidentally took a wrong turn, so it ended up being 10k 🤑

Anyways, I found my journal entries about the first 5 runs I did.


Run 1

Run 2

Run 3

Run 4

Run 5

After those 5 runs I probably did about 10 more short runs and then did the 5k and 10k. Now I actually enjoy running and find it a great way to unwind my mind. So just keep running! 🏃‍♂️
