Couch to 5K

Week 6 Run 3 all done and dusted yesterday, now *gulps* it's time for my first 5K charity run tomorrow morning!

So chuffed to hear Laura say that I am finally a runner! W6R3 passed yesterday without much incident, I still can't believe how much my stamina has improved from Week 1!! But.. *drumroll* I have my first charity 5K tomorrow morning in Regent's Park! I'm a bit worried, and my tummy has butterflies, but I know that whilst I'm not expected to have to run the whole 5K, and there will be a lot of people there who are walking, I desperately want to do a good job- I've managed to raise a reasonable amount of sponsorship and I want to run the best I can! I was due to be graduating before this run, but to various unforseen events,I'm only going on to Week 7 now, so worried I won't do a good job or not have the stamina to do the race :/ Thinking that I will run listening to a Week 7 podcast and then see how I feel at the end of that, at least that will mean another 25 mins of running covered, so hopefully not too much more afterwards!

You will be fine just keep on at your normal pace and you will be soooo proud of yourself when you cross the finish line. Enjoy.

Well done on getting through week six; it's not the most pleasant of weeks at all. Good luck for tomorrow; you'll be fine. Just do what you've been doing and you'll have no problems.

Oh, and one more thing: enjoy and feel proud! :-) (Okay, technically that's two things. I should have hyphenated it. Meh, the message is clear. :-P )

We'll done on completing week 6.

You will be fine for your race, keep it steady and I imagine the adrenaline of the event will get you over the finishing line.

Hope it went well. I did my second one yesterday. Slow & steady but didn't walk or stop.
