Greetings all. :o) I've just (well, on Friday!) completed week two of c2k. I've been lurking here for the duration of that but haven't got around to posting and saying hello, until now. So, hello! This community is fantastic and I thought it about time I introduced myself instead of lurking in the shadows the whole time. I'm thoroughly enjoying running; I actually look forward to getting out of bed at 0430 (!) on my running days. I find running early in the morning to be so enjoyable and peaceful. Anyway, on Friday I completed week two, despite that run being a very odd one. For most of it I felt I struggled, until the very last 90 second run when I suddenly perked up and really enjoyed it. So much so I was very naughty and kept on running a bit longer!
It's only early days but I didn't think I'd get this far even, having not done any proper exercise in a few years. Run one of week one had me doubting I could even manage a minute, but I got through it and week two and am now looking forward to the start of week three on Monday. It's not often I'll say that I'm looking forward to getting up on a Monday morning!
After week one I was feeling so positive I signed-up to a 5k fun run in August. Something to work toward and look forward to. Then, this morning, in a moment of total madness, I signed-up to the Great Yorkshire Run in September. It's 10k. *gulp* Can I run 10k by the end of September? Goodness knows but now this is my motivation, my goal and what I'm working (slowly!) towards. I'll make Laura proud!
As an aside, I find myself talking to Laura. Surely I'm not the only one...?
It's a pleasure to meet you all; I'm looking forward to being part of the community here.
