My PBs

My PBs

A year after getting off the couch and I've been thinking about where I am today,

I run 3 or 4 times a week for between 5 and 10k

I'm 2.5 stone lighter and 3 dress sizes smaller

My PB for 5k is 30.46 (I will break 30 one day...)

My PB for 10k is 1.07.08 ( for my only 10k race so far)

But by far my best 'PB' is the joy I feel every time I get out there.

The picture is me by the stream where I finish my cool down. Today I did some stretches for the first time, thanks to advice from a few of you!

Love this community and love running xx

  • Stream: I'd just want to wade in....

    You've got running very well integrated into your life, with a realistic set of goals. Fantastic.

  • Amazing achievements!!!

  • Lovely post - the pbs are great but nothing beats the joy of just bring able to run does it? Here's to your next year of being a runner!โ˜บ

  • Shame there's no "LOVE" thingy to click here. What a great post, and a positive and very motivating story. Well done, well done, and WELL DONE. Pompoms waving for you here!!!

  • beautiful.. what a perfect post....:)

    Running for pure joy...that says it all :) x

  • Great post. You've made some great and lasting changes to your life (and waistline) I'm sure you'll crack that elusive 30minutes 5k very soon :)

  • Great to hear. It's a dream realised isn't it, and it's within reach of normal folks ๐Ÿ™‚ I only wish I'd heard of C25k years ago

    Being so much lighter makes our running so much easier โ˜บ๏ธ Although I have managed to put three pounds back on ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  • Yes, I wish I'd found running sooner, but it's great to feel it's never too late. Im sure you'll shake the 3 pounds ๐Ÿ˜Š I'm now pushing in to lose another stone and I'll go off like a rocket!!!

  • Good for you. Being in another stone lighter bracket sure puts a spring in your step and spurs you on as it's like batting downhill. I felt dead springy once I'd ditched the lard
