A bit late for this update, but I feel it must be shared... I only graduated C25K in late Feb and managed to reach 5k in mid March... On Saturday, I went out to do 8k while working my way up to 10....and ended up doing 9, yes 9 kilometers! In one go! Who me? That's unbelievable!!
Sorry to sound so ecstatic, but I never believed I would be able to reach these sort of distances, and actually feel so good doing it! It was one of those runs where everything comes together, good pacing, good breathing, the legs feeling strong, the weather being good for running....
I just want to thank everyone in this and the C25K community for the support and inspiration, and say: I'll get to 10k soon, and then I'll probably go further (and hopefully faster... I'm terribly slow!)
Keep running strong everyone
