Redoing C25K W1:R1

Thanks Anniemurph for reminding me about the Beyonders’ event.

It occurred to me as I read Anniemurph’s post that I actually can’t remember where I did my first run (though it was possibly by the river because where I live is pretty undulating) so was trying to decide where I should go to run it this time.

I didn’t actually have to try too hard as one of the other events on my FB calendar is a run on the beach followed by pizza (also on the beach) this Friday. I wasn’t going to run as 1) my new pooch isn’t old enough to run in harness yet, and 2) running on sand makes my knees hurt, but I was going to go and walk with some of the others as it is more a social event than anything else. Anyway, I reckon I can maybe manage W1:R1 on sand as long as I run really slowly. And wear trail shoes.

I’ve never tried running on sand, hope it doesn’t play havoc with your knees.

I’ve tried it a couple of times, if my knees do start playing me up I’ll stop and do the run over the weekend instead.

Running on sand is hard work! I've only done it a couple of times. Have a lovely time, though - pizza on the beach sounds fab :)

It is hard work! 😀 Not sure that I can pull it off, but I will give it a good go.

I managed it! Pizza was not eaten by me - it has to be really good to tempt me to eat bread again, and the ones on offer just. Weren’t.
