I'm a newbie. There. I said it, and I feel good
I "ran" a Parkrun two weekends ago, and although I amazed myself by doing it in under 36 minutes, I was absolutely wrecked in the thighs for 5 days afterwards - lol.
I play hockey, but in defence, so don't do any consistent amount of running, I'm also 43, and 4 stone overweight.
So I thought even though I completed the Parkrun with stages of walking, it would make sense to have a go at doing it properly, so I remembered C25K which I had heard about a long time ago.
I downloaded the podcasts so set out after work this evening. I had my last splurge on my meal this evening, treating myself to a final kebab for a while so not the best preparation, eh ?
Anyway, I'm pleased to report that I completed the run, I tried to find a place where I could be alone, but pretty much failed being as it is a warm evening, and ended up using the edge of a park and some street getting a mix of tarmac and grass.
By the 6th cycle I was beginning to feel tired, but strangely the last one seemed almost the easiest of the lot.
We'll see how my body reacts to that one tomorrow
