Thanks to brilliant advice from my main man Mr Ianoddatruffe, I successfully completed a 25 minute run. After continued setbacks recently I'd been struggling to run any decent distance and posted on here of my frustration at this. I got the advice my My Main Dude to repeat some of the C25K weeks, using Laura to give me some organised planned running - AND IT'S WORKED!
I decided to go back to Week 7 and work my through to Week 9 once again, in the hope that the structure of the plan will get me back to where I once belonged! So apart form having to put up with the atrocious music on the podcasts, it's the way forward for me.
The other thing pushing me on (apart from all you lovely people) is my rapidly expanding waistline! Since my morning routine of running has been so buggered up lately, my weight is increasing and this is incredibly frustrating! I blame the vats of wine I consume, along with sitting all day at a computer. It aint conducive to being slim I can tell you. So......I am hoping once I'm back in my 5K groove once again, the scales will start to make for better reading. I'm 13.5 stone at the moment which is at least 10lbs too much for me. Probably more actually....
So to all those struggling to keep running, and I've been one of those, just keep at it - for your bodies sake!
