So tonight I was half way through my first 28min run of week 8 when the C25K app stopped on me.... I just decided to keep going and see how far I could go / long I could keep going. I was tracking my distance and when it got to 4k I felt I could keep going and decided to try and crack a 5k run (as incentive to keep on track I've signed up to do the Sport Relief 3mile run on 23rd March) and I did it, I managed to run 5k and it took me 40min.
This is the longest I have ever run for and just 7 weeks ago I struggled to run for a minute and the thought of ever being able to run for 30min seemed impossible.
The C25K app has worked so well to build up my stamina... I was over the moon that I kept going for 40min today, I now feel more confident about doing my Sport Relief run in just over 3 weeks time....I'm def going to keep up the running and I'm thinking of going to my first park Run soon.
