So, I started C25K last Monday, then a few days later I discovered this site and have been reading so many inspirational blogs since then.I decided today to start this blog to record my runs and ,hopefully, my progress....so here goes.
I found last weeks runs relatively easy, just a few niggly aches after the first two - around my neck ( always been a bit of a dodgy area for me) and around my ribs at the sides a bit,but nothing major.
Started out early this morning ,due to the heat ( I'm in SW France...running anytime other than first thing will be a no-no for me this time of year, though I think I'm going to prefer to get out early anytime). It was fine, harder than last week ,but I was quite enjoying it by the time the last run started-though that may have been psychological .Feeling fine now ....no aches so far.
Diet-wise, I'm on the 5:2 (aka The Fast Diet ) and have just a couple of kilos left to lose,so I'm hoping this might speed things up as I've plateau'd a bit of late( too much wine and chocolate creeping in).My fast days are Mondays and Thursdays and so far I have not had a problem with running on a fast day.I am just about to have lunch.....yes, it's not a complete fast...I have a 500 cals to do what I want with for the day.Maybe when I am doing the tougher weeks I will have to re- plan this, we' ll see.
Can't quite believe,like most people who have already got there, that I will complete 5K by Week 9 ....hopefully I will get a bit of encouragement from one or two of you along the way.
Well ,I think I've said enough for a newbie,so I'm going to be brave and hit 'Publish' .......!
