Right then I don't know what to say really. Another run done and only one left to go on C25K.
After the warm-up walk I found the first 2 1/2 minutes quite tough. I set off at a slow pace as I've learned to do now but that first bit is tough psychologically. After 5 minutes I settled down and manged to keep an even pace (I think) right through to the end and even picked up the pace for the last 60 seconds.
I've worked out that tonight I ran a distance of 4.15 kms during the 30 minutes running. So quite satisfied with that even though the total for my route is 5.25kms.
As I am coming to the end of the nine weeks I thought about what I have enjoyed about all this running. Firstly then I have enjoyed the challenge of each week. On starting the programme I thought: "60 seconds of running, well that'll be easy!!" How wrong was I about that. I was longing to be told to stop and walk. But obviously the people (or person) that designed this has really got it right. Secondly I learnt that if you got to the end of each week, and even if you are not feeling confident, you really are ready for the next step.It is all about trust. Thirdly I have learnt that I can push myself a bit more. I don't need to give up and that is really a first for me. Previously I was always ready to give up and drop a challenge. And lastly I have enjoyed the solitude of running with just me and my MP3 player for company.
So there it is. Ready now for Saturday and beyond!
