Couch to 5K

Last night I did w8r1 and had to use my head to get rid of the gremlin on my shoulder saying I couldn't do it. It was when I got home I discovered where he had come from. I had run faster but I did it: so 25 minutes 3.9 km means over 4km at the end of next week. Yes!

My other motivation is that I ordered my graduation t shirt and it arrived in the post yesterday. I can't put it on my back until the end of next week so I'll hang it up where I can see it to remind me how far I have come.

Anyone just starting out remember, if an overweight 52 year old who has never run in her life before can do it, so can you!

Go on Nicola !! - 4k is a massive achievement so a huge well done on making it this far.

Am starting to feel that my little gremlins are starting to take off the gaffa tape which I gagged them with in W4 - but I'm determined to be bigger than those little guys.

Happy Running
