August 26th 2010-I ran 6km this evening in 39 minutes and 40 seconds. I know this is a slow time! I didn't want to go to fast as this was the first time I had run so far. I thought it would be a good idea to just take it nice and easy.
Because I took it so easy I believe I could have carried on for a few more kilometres as I still had so much energy after the 6km. I didn't run any further though because I know it's a good idea to built the distance up slowly and with my knees I didn't want to risk an injury.
I am planning on running 7 or 8km on Sunday again at an easy pace.
