Who'd have thought it?! I started running a year ago at the ripe old age of 56. Literally never run since junior school and not at all fit and here I am! Can't pretend it was easy but I did run just about all the way (apart from when I stopped to go to the loo and again on the very last hill). My time was 2 hrs 56m - would have been at least five minutes less if not for that loo stop :o). I know compared to a lot of people that's not a great time but I'd reckoned on about 3 hours so I was happy with that. Oh - and hubby checked on my position which was 37,845 - out of a field of 56,000 I didn't think that was bad for a "non-runner"!
Today - I'm OK - as long as I keep moving, otherwise I seize up. Would I do it again? Maybe - give me a few more days to recover and I'll let you know. Do I want to go for the "big one" - a marathon? NO THANKS - all respect and good luck to anyone who fancies that but definitely not for me! I'm doing the Sheffield 10K in a couple of weeks though - that should be a doddle by comparison!! I really can't believe I'm saying these things :oD
