There's a C25K at my local running club each Wednesday which is free, they don't do the program as such but it's for beginners to do stuff like warm ups, interval training, stretches, cool downs. They did a shout out to see who was doing our local 10k and my hand went up. At the end of the session I was chatting and said I hadn't joined the club as I felt I was too slow. I got told 'it doesn't matter, you're one of us now!' So I did it, and on my first 10k in just over 2 weeks I'll be wearing a running club vest!
I'm still in shock 😳
