Did it!

My private goal with C25k has been to run the length of the prom and back - and today I did it!

5.30am, chucking it down with rain and unseasonably cold; I wasn't even sure I'd be able to run the 25 mins, never mind any extra. But I found my rhythm quite quickly and when the 25 mins were up and the end of the prom in sight, I kept going. Took me 29 mins and it's just over 4km so I've a way to go before I do 5km in 30 mins, but it felt like a real achievement :-)

So if anyone saw a shopping wet, middle aged woman grin like a loon & give a little cheer to herself at prom end shortly after 6am today, that was me.

Tell you what though, the dog walk I did straight after my run turned my legs to jelly!

  • Amazingly well done Lola465! You must be feeling totally chuffed! The end of the programme is in sight and you've achieved a personal goal too! Aaaahhh how I envy your running venue, sounds wonderful ... I reckon the English seaside is better in rain and storms than in sunshine :) Enjoy your next few runs and continue glowing and grinning stupidly cos you know you can do it! ;) Cheers, Linda x

  • Thanks Linda :-)

    I am lucky, living so close to the beach; it makes the early morning runs a pleasure.
