My first 10k... For Unseen

This Saturday just gone, I ran my first 10k... For a brilliant charity www.unseenuk.org

They do a lot of good work for victims/survivors of human trafficking and other associated issues.


I've not run 2.5k or 5k before, so 10k, in the rain, in the woods, in the dark, was very much out of my comfort zone. But what helped me a lot was being able to control my breathing... Something that a combination of scuba (I am learning to dive) and BJJ (I train) helped me to do.

Being able to switch from slow to fast and to keep things constant like our breathing... Is amazing exercise... My Stretch and Roll class and MENTFITTZ class does that too 🎆
