First attempt at 10 miles

I thought I'd have a bash at running ten miles this weekend, so went out this morning to try and do it.

I ran 8.6 miles before stopping to walk for about 30 seconds. This was more to do with the wind hitting me in the face and annoying me than actually being tired. I started up again and ran about another mile before deciding it was best for my legs to walk the half mile or so home.

Its the first time I've run further than 6.2 miles before, so it was quite a step up.

I did the 10 mile run in 1 hour 51 minutes and 21 seconds. Not the quickest time, but a good start for me I think.
