Couch to 5K

Jogging up and down Snowdon!!!! Well, at least part of it!

As I said in my last blog I didn't get to do my last run of week 8 at the weekend as I was driving a team on the three peaks challenge. But I did manage to make the ascent of Snowdon at the end of the trip. I found the walking quite easy which can only be as a result of C25K as I would have struggled a few weeks ago. In fact I even jogged up some of the boulder step sections and then jogged down the last km to the village, I was amazed.

Legs are suffering today but getting better by the hour and hope to get out for the next run tomorrow evening, this time on the flat!

Do you realise what that makes you? You are a Trail Runner ~ a Hill Runner ~ a Fell Runner, and I am so impressed. I'm always impressed by runners, but these guys (and that includes you) are in a different league.

I've done Snowdon (Pyg track - walking) and I know what she can be like, and to run on her majestic slopes must be a memorable experience indeed.


That's very kind of you but I'm really not, I only jogged up some of it and I was simply amazed that the walking felt so easy an that I voluntarily jogged some of it.


Please don't underestimate yourself. As far as I'm concerned, if you run on hills/mountains, you ARE a hill runner.

BTW, my pic was taken by the missus on Snowdon.


Wow that's amazing! Walking up there a couple of years ago nearly killed me! Have to confess I'm hoping all this running will make walking up mountains easier.
