As some of you may know I've been quite successfully managing my c25k journey on the treadmill & have reached wk6r2. Have been keeping an eye on Gdaughters 3&4 for part of this wkend so thought have another go at wk5r2 outside ,as I quite liked that run. Mentally I told myself that I'd already completed wk5r3 & wks6r 1&2 so "get out there & stop being a big wuss!"
Off I went, well long story short, I walked most of the way. Almost as soon as I started ,joints aching, gasping for breath, (must be my age Ducky!) If I'd been going any slower I would have been stationary but I did keep trying & broke into a trot as often as I could, at least I was moving. When Laura announced at the end .well done you've run for 8 mins twice today, I did manage a wry smile. So back to my TT ( trusty treadmill) later today & when I've managed to complete c25k I'll do it all over again outside. Good plan eh! Onwards & upwards Grandma
