I've done wk 9 r1. Oh my giddy aunt. I have actually done what it should say on the tin: gone from couch to 30 minutes. Me. ME! Like a lot of people, I'm a way off 5k yet. I worked out I'd done 4.33k, which would mean assuming similar pace I could do 5k in just under 35 minutes, which I'd be very happy with. And to top it all, last night in a fit of bravado I went and registered for parkrun. I have my Race for Life two weeks tomorrow, so I sort of thought a trial run in a group of people next week might be a good idea. I checked the results and was pleasantly surprised to find there were quite a few people who will theoretically be slower than me. I know someone has to come last and it doesn't matter, but still. I'd prefer it not be be me. I still don't know if I'll have the guts to go and do it next Saturday. Maybe I'll see how the final two (final two!!!) runs go.
I haven't posted for a while, so I'm hoping the people who were at about the same stage as me are doing well (hello LondonKel and Helen28 - you've probably finished as I've had to take a bit more time recently for various reasons).
I've added a pic of the trail I ran part of the way today. It was mizzling when I went out and did rain almost properly for part of it. I've decided I really like those conditions as it keeps my mouth from drying out!
And finally.... hope my fellow 5x50ers are doing well. Great group pic and blog by the way. I'm really feeling the benefits of it now, even despite not quite managing the full whack on some days. I am trimmer all round and stronger and bendier. Feels great.
