“Ran for 1:13:48, no walking, and completed 12.1km, and my 10km split was just 14 seconds over the hour* :) Rather pleased with myself. *I'm also trying the 10K under an hour challenge.”

Sue P I so felt like walking to day but I didn't and although I was hoping to finish my 10k sub 60 minutes the fact that I went over the hour means I completed this challenge instead; that's four times over an hour now - considering on 8/8/12 I could just about manage one minute I'm not too disappointed :)
Allan J 11.18k in 60m 27s - quite a few hills in it as well, 145 metres of climb (according to my watch anyway - felt like more).
Jonathan S logged 11.07 km of Running in 1:02:11 on 12 Mar
I did it. Barely though. At around 50 mins I was already ready to give up because I was already "dizzy", but I then I thought, I've already "suffered" 50, why not hold on for just another 10 mins. I'm glad and relieved that I persisted. Cheers!
Gem W Attempted for 45 minutes straight, but by the time I looked to see how long I had been running (on a treadmill, I cover up the time), it had already been 45:54 so I decided that I could make it another 15 minutes. Struggled, but made it 61 minutes total (since that's all the treadmill would let me; which I'm not complaining!) ;) I'm hurting today though considering this is the first time EVER running that long!! But it was great!! :)
Toirleach O I'm up to 45 minutes now quite comfortably. I'll give myself another until Sunday fortnight (17th Feb) to hit the hour mark. There is no point overdoing it :). It fits nicely with my plan for a 10k mid-april as well.
Toirleach O I think it will take me a few more weeks to work up to this but I feel that having the challenge will definitely motivate me.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
