Me and my trainers on holiday

I recently returned from a gorgeous holiday in Cyprus. I took my trainers with me determined to keep my three runs per week schedule alive and well. I managed to complete WEEK 3 and start WEEK 4 and boy was it grrrrrreat! Running in the early evening when it was cooler, right beside the Mediterranean with a light breeze in glorious sunshine was AMAZING. I was freaked out by the 5 minute run portion on WEEK 4 but managed it absolutely fine.

On my return home yesterday, I completed the LAST of my WEEK 4 runs and for the very very first time, I had no pain or stiffness in my legs. I wasn't even out of breath much and still had a bit left in the tank at the very end of it all. This C25K thing is incredible, not only for feeling fitter and losing weight - but for the enormous feeling of WELL BEING!!

Thank you for reading. Week 5 next week.........YIKES!!!

  • Sounds marvellous. I think that runnng in new places brings a new dimension and makes it much easier. And I guess running along the shores of the Med as yhe sun is setting would be quite magical.

    I'm jealous!

  • Oh that does sound wonderful! Really glad it went so well for you.

    Onward and upward. :D
