This weekend I decided to set myself the challenge of running further than I had done before. Previously the furthest I had ran was 10 miles.

I got up at 06.30 this morning ready to run! After a hot cup of coffee, I went out into what felt like winter and off I went.

A couple of hours later, 3 rich tea biscuits, an apple and quite a few nettle stings I got back home having ran 21km (13.05 miles). I didn’t hurt as much as I was expecting but I knew I’d done it!
