A few weeks to the BM10k and my other half and I are signed up and ready to go. Unfortunately it looks like it will be the slowest 10K ever as I had a stroke on Friday.
I dodged a proverbial bullet and am lucky to be alive, one of the things that saved me was how fit I now am thanks to C25K, without this programme I might not be here today.
I spoke to the stroke specialist and she said so can go ahead but need to run slow and walk lots. I was on course for a first sub one hour until a naughty clot decided to travel north and go bang.
I may have a DNF as I need to take my health seriously or I may have to walk miles but I’ll give it a go
If you’re at the Brighton Marathon 10K and see me toddling along at the back then say ‘hi’
...and I’ll still be in front of people on the couch.
