Yesterday I completed Week 4 of JuJu’s plan and I am so proud of myself.
I did the 8k in 58m 28s so carried on to 60 minutes.
I’m sure my story is the same as many of you. Exactly a year ago. I started Wk1run1 of C25K in my normal clothes because I was overweight and embarrassed to be seen running. I finished C25K in December and have been parkrunning since February this year. It took me 45mins and 7secs to do the 5k. I was happy doing 5Ks but my times had stagnated around 37 minutes.
So three weeks ago, I decided to boost my stamina by running a little bit further.
My PB for 5k is now down to 35mins 16secs and I can actually run for an hour without stopping.
That first C25K W1R1 feels like a million miles away now. 😄👍
