Join Me On My 10K Journey | Part 6

Welcome to Part 5 of my 10k training journey! This one is jam packed with positive vibes, good food and fun run photos!

I’m still following the 5k to 10k training programme, but have also been doing some free runs on days where my body is tired or I don’t have much time. I’ve found some nice areas to run in where I live, so have been mixing up my route a bit.

This week saw a complete overhaul in my diet. I was letting naughty, little snacks enter my body daily and I wasn’t feeling very good about myself. Of course, I still allow myself treats – just not as many as I was having! As mentioned in my last post, I have started a new Instagram account completely dedicated to my fitness, food and training. You can find it at @kerrys.fitness.journey

Here are some photos of the food I have been enjoying this week.

As part of my journey, I have also been working on my confidence, especially that to do with my body. I’ve never liked how I look or how my body is shaped, but now I’m at the grand old age of 30, I realise it’s about time I stop wasting time worrying about it and start doing something about it! My body is slowly changing with all the running and healthy eating and this alone gives me a massive boost. Running releases all those happy hormones and endorphins and the feeling is addictive. I also treated myself to a new pair of jeans, which I’m obsessed with!

Here’s for another exciting bit – Mum and I took part in Colour5k yesterday! It was such a brilliant afternoon and I loved crossing the finish line with Mum. Getting a medal was also a lovely bonus! I think I may have Mum hooked on taking part in these events now, so hopefully there will be lots more to come!

What an amazing week! I’m feeling extra positive about the week ahead. Have a good one!
