Ok, it might be an exaggeration And it should be Supernomoresloth but that's not as catchy as Supersloth...
I just came home from the gym where I did not only 30 minutes of circuit training (my arms and upper body are very grateful for that) but also did my longest voluntary run since they've changed this site!!!
I remember my excitement when I did my last 7k and came to this site, bursting of proud, to tell you all and all I saw was a complete mess... Well, I was about 2 minutes faster back then but I think my 50:01 minutes for 7.1k are still pretty ok especially as this has been my longest run in months. Again, I couldn't motivate myself to go to the park (one of my biggest problems: since I joined the gym, I've run outside only two times... and I always feel that the treadmill is a lot easier so it's perhaps too easy... well, that's another topic) and as I wanted to do circuit training today as well I combined the run as cardio training with it.
I feel great. I'm freezing as always after a run/work out but I feel absolutely great. I was dizzy after 5.5k and wanted to stop many times (after the magical 5k mark) but I kept going. Several weeks ago someone here asked how to get to the 5k as she "only" was able to do 4.x k. I answered, that she has to think it's only one additional k and how great it is that we now can say ONLY one more k. I thought of that when I hit the 6k mark and wanted to stop so badly. The decision to make it a 7k was made during the run, I only planned a 6k before so it was even harder to keep going after that mark.
A year ago, I did my first attempts to run. I gave up after three weeks (it wasn't C25K). I bought a pedometer in March and did 10,000 steps (sometimes more) a day. I found C25k on another site at the end of March and decided I would start it after Easter (and I did!). Nine weeks later, I was able to run for thirty minutes. I ran in the heat during the summer. I felt dizzy sometimes but didn't give up. I joined the gym in September and have never missed one of my three training sessions per week since then. I did my fastest 5k ever on the treadmill (random programme level 5, 31:23min) (Have been focussing on getting my 5k time down not on distance). And now, 6 months after I've started to run, I'm able to do a circuit training followed by a 7k run...
As I said: Watch out, here comes SUPERSLOTH!
Now my next challenge will be: Get used again to run outside where you have to push yourself!
PS: I did another long run between the day they changed the site and today... but it wasn't voluntarily, my lack of orientation caused the longer run (ok, yeah, I got lost ...and I've been living here for more than 2 years...)
