I know it's rude to shout but a not quite 52 year old male has managed to run 5k in 26 minutes and 25 seconds before his 52nd birthday. Carrying on to complete week 9 run 2's remaining minutes with no break and a sprint for the last minute. I cannot rate this programme highly enough.
Laura was back with me today. I ran for 15 minutes at 7.1 mph, then 12 minutes at 7 mph before dropping down to 6mph and back up to 7mph for the last minute. (3.48 miles in 30 minutes)
Yes I had aches and pains when I finished but I have achieved my personal target I set at the start of this programme and know I can complete run 3 and graduate on saturday.
Thank you Laura and thank you fellow C25Kers for helping me achieve what seemed so far away a couple of months ago.
Can't wait for Saturday! Happy Running!
