I tried writing this post in a way that wouldn't come across as bragging but gave up after three attempts so I'll unashamedly shout it from the roof tops instead
Stage one of my Great North Run training was completed this weekend at the Forest of Dean Rat Race 10K Trail run and I did VERY WELL - and this is all because I found C25K!
I expected a good time as I'd had fantastic parkrun and 10k trial runs in the month before and achieved a PB in all three. It's been very hard work and I take my training way too seriously!
I'm extremely chuffed and had no idea I would be able to do this when I was running for 60 seconds, walking for 90 seconds just 8 months ago and used to regularly post here!
I realise many of you don't believe this is possible just yet, but stick with it - there is nothing special about me!
