My first 10k

I've just come back from the first run of the final week of my B210K programme. Today was to be the first time that I ran with no walking and it was 60 minutes. I started c25k just under 5 months ago.

I was nervous before I started out, but it went really well, and I completed it in 1:03:03 and included a hill right at the end too!

Now I know I can do the 10k I booked for this Sundays RFL.

Wow, well done. That sounds like a very big achievement. There you are, I bet you never thought you could do that did you ? This is what amazes me about these programs

Thanks, actually having done c25k I did have faith in the b210k. I think this weeks runs are the equivalent of c25k's w5r3 - you have to trust the programme and I did :)

good details. Are these supported with any music?

Yes, the music is much better than on the C25K podcasts. think Britney Spears, Rhianna, etc.
