Running Progress August 2019
As you guys know, I am documenting my jogging progress since I began to run. A month ago I was documenting how I managed to do a non-stop 4 km run. The previous year I managed it to do 5 km but I never could run further than that. But guess what happened today? I ran 6.2 km without a single break. It was a non-stop run and I am super excited about it. It’s a huge milestone because it means now I could basically participate in a 5k run as I broke through 5 km several times and now I ran much further. By the way, a friend said last year “If you continue, you probably will run 10 km at some point” and I replied, “I question that I can do this”. But considering that I ran 6.2 km today, only 3.8 km are still missing. Who knows, maybe my friend is not wrong.
Maybe I can achieve it in this life. I actually didn’t believe that I could still run 5 km, but now I’ve done it quite often already. For now, I think I am interested to break 7 km this year. Let’s see if I can do it! I don’t know if I need to achieve 10 km, because 5 km is already good. Apart from that, I like the fact that I run 3 times a week on average because this is regularity and much more important than adding miles. But the truth is, with that regularity, the routes become easier and easier, which will automatically make you run further, sometimes spontaneously during the run when you realize you still have power. This is why I achieved a non-stop 6.2 km run today. I am super excited and in very good mood now!
