I AM NOT a RUNNER but today I ran/walked 7km in 58 minutes. Mindpower is the key. Last year I did the same distance in 1 hour and 30 minutes y so that is a 32 minute improvement. In 2014 I did the same distance in 1 and 10 minutes. So from my PB I improved 12 minutes.
How? Well it is not training, that is for sure. It was mind over matter. I figured if I could achieve my handstand and climb a rope in gymnastics then I could push myself a bit harder with running too.
So instead of giving up. I run then I walked and then ran then walked and so on until I got to the end and I totally surprised myself. I was amazed! I am now determined should my knees hold out to improve my time next January… not sure what to aim for but if I try training running, that has got to help in the least.
