Yes I believe today marked 1 year since I started c25k! I feel I've come a long way 😁 from struggling around the local allotments too embarrassed to be seen, not able to run for a minute, to the joy of completing W5R3 🤣 followed by graduation and a sub 30 5k 😁
Within 6 months of starting I'd progressed to HM distance, lost weight, felt fitter and grown massively in confidence.
A bit of a dip after that for a few months, I was still training but not to the level i had been, nice weather and alcohol knocked me off course for a while!
Regular training has got me back on track though, I'm not as light as I would like to be, I am running most days, am going to the gym regularly and feel stronger and faster than I ever have 💪🏻
Running didn't just change my life, it saved it 👌🏻
I did run today, a 28 min 5k, also got the dreaded "New Shoes Needed" reminder from Strava after covering nearly 800km in my ASICS Gel Cumulus and close to 1000km in a year.
Any good shoes on sale? I'm leaning toward trying some Brooks Glycerin but I'm not 100% yet.
Have a great day everybody!
You're getting more mileage out of your shoes than I am. 600km seems to be the point where the rubber has gone from the soles of mine. My current shoes are at 450km. The previous ones lasted 580km. I already have two new pairs on standby ready to use in exactly the same style.
(My graduation anniversary will be the 28th of this month.)
To be honest my shoes still look pristine, I dont want to push it though and risk an injury due to a worn out shoe.
Mine are "barefoot" and there's almost no cushioning to start with.
Mine have a decent amount of cushion, I think could easily get more time out of them.
There's a lot of wear on that right heel!
Yeah I've bit the bullet and ordered a new pair! Il use these old ones as gym shoes 😁
I've went with new brooks glycerin as they have been so highly recommended by good friend of mine, plus brooks have a free return policy if you really don't get on with there shoes 👍🏻
