Hi gang! A little over 18 months ago I saw running as a lunatic occupation for sweaty nut jobs. They just needed some 'friendly' advice shouted at them from my car window whilst I drove the he quarter mile or so to the chip shop, perhaps they would see the error of their ways. Well a reality check in the form of a ticking off from my local gp led to a year of lifestyle modification (is that phrase modern BS?!) and weight loss. The BBC sponsored One You version of C25K sat on my phone for almost a year, filed under 'seemed like a good idea at the time' until one morning I spotted a very sweaty but determined looking lady running. I didn't laugh or scoff, I remembered the app and thought why not?!
That was in June this year, I graduated C25K on 11th August (I've decided that will be my running birthday! 😁) and now ladies and gentlemen, to the point of these ramblings!, this morning I ran 10km! 😵4 months after taking up running I'm pleased to be a member of the sweaty lunatic fraternity! 😁
For the record the time was 1:15.01 which isn't too shabby either!
