Couch to 5K

Battle is won!

Battle is won!

C25K completed. I wore my elf ears and boy did they make me fast! 28 minutes .... but.....it 'wasn't a precisely measured course'

Got a goody bag after with a drinks bottle, a beer (!), a pasty, a small hand towel and some juice. All round very pleased with myself.

(The harp stayed at home, but I played it in spirit)

Fish and chips to celebrate

Thanks poppypug. Fish and chips were sooooo tasty!

Well done Corporal I_will. Excellent work! Please accept this promotion to Second Lieutenant in honour of your hard work and moral encouragement to all. The harp deserves a special mention. You can manage the 5k without it. I need it just to reach 30mins. Fabulous! Really pleased for you!

What's next for you do you think?

I've got R4L on 6th July but really don't know ATM... what about you? x cant decide whether to try to improve the 5k for a while or try for further...

Reply

R4L is a good thing to have to work towards. I might try the speed stamina podcasts with Laura but I think overall I'm going to aim for 10k next.

What a way to graduate, but we NEED pics of the elf ears!!

I do have photographic evidence but being a bit of a computer noob, not sure how to attach! ^..^
