Just done my final run of Week 1. I am fairly sure that I am going faster than I did when I completed this programme last year, so I'm hoping that by the end of week 9 I will be able to do 5K in 30 mins. Even so, I am fairly shocked at how pleased I was to be able to stop running at the end of just 60 seconds. Onwards and upwards. If I could get fit running last year I can do it again this year. So far my back (which is what put me out of action in the first place) hasn't been complaining as I've been careful to only run on the grass, rather than pounding the hard tarmac. It does rather limit me to running round in circles in the local rec, though.
