Kerry was diagnosed with NEC (necrotising enterocolitis), a serious condition in which tissues in the intestine become inflamed, soon after birth. Kerry underwent three operations at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and returned for regular check-ups throughout her childhood. Inspired by her time at GOSH, Kerry decided to pursue a career as a nurse and returned to GOSH as a student nurse. Here she shares her story.
So, I’m back from my holiday in Cornwall. Rather unsurprisingly while I was away I found myself also having a little holiday from training and only managed one run. It was a great little route along the Camel Trial in Padstow and according to Strava I did a fairly decent pace (although I think Strava is a little generous with its distances).
Following last Sunday’s British 10K I was feeling pretty low about running this week. I know running conditions weren’t ideal but I was really disappointed with my time and my confidence took a bit of a bash. Despite all my training sessions going well I couldn’t really shake the negativity I was feeling about my running abilities.
