This is my second time round completing C25K and I was going great guns until about two weeks ago when I finished week 7. Had a day off work today and instead of putting 'run' on the bottom of my 'to do' list for today I put it at the top.
Despite the wind and the rain [I am so brave!] I went out first thing and took it easy. Then the battery went on my Garmin so I had no way of checking my pace or the time. Thankfully Laura was on hand to keep me posted on time and i was well chuffed when she said 'you have 5 mins left' when I'd convinced myself i had about another 10! Kept going til the end and picked up the pace a little.
Moral of the story is; make sure i have my Garmin charged the night before a run, but not to look at it too much when I'm running as it's too much of a distraction! Think I can crack this pace malarkey without clock watching [famous last words eh?]. Very much looking forward to my next run and completing the programme again for the second time around. Much more comfortable with my ability this time round, probably because I know I can do this as I've done it before. Happy running all!
