I did the Race for life in Colchester yesterday and finished with a runkeeper time of 34.37 (official clock said 36.03 but that started before I reached the start line due to the crowds). As I am still on week 6 this was the first time that I have jogged 5k for about 20 years! While my time wasn't as good as my friend who was in the same race, I know that without Couch 25k I wouldn't have been able to complete it jogging at any speed! It was worth all the dragging myself out for a run when I couldn't really be bothered! Now my friend believes that I have actually got a bit fitter she has suggested that I go with her to a park run and a 10k. I said that I want to finish C25k first, but then maybe! Now my mental goals have updated to run 5k sub 30mins and to fit into something from a non plus size store!
