Completed my 3rd 30 minute run this morning. I did carry on for 2 min 30 seconds longer to reach 4k. I was so excited I was jumping with excitement in my head as the garmin watch reached 30 minutes lol.
I can't believe I've finally got there. I started at the end of April, just after my 42nd birthday never having run before and never wanting to (and totally unfit and never having enjoyed exercise), had a couple of weeks rest with a knee injury, but can honestly say that I've got the bug!!
Husband and I have now signed up for a Run or Dye event in October, so now I've got my next target to aim for (to be able to run for 5k). And we are also talking of doing a local park run, but think I'd like to know that I can run 5k first. I think it will be a very long while (or maybe even never) before I can run at his speed, but I'm not bothered about that.
Off to download the stepping stones and stamina apps to see what they are all about. And maybe the zombie app too. So excited lol. And perhaps I deserve some new running kit too?!
Anyone just starting, keep going, it DOES work!
