and ran from home- to the reservoir, around the res and then back home and managed to run (all be it I was rather only JUST running at some points towards the end) but managed to run 51 minutes and 34 seconds in all before I got home and fell (gracefully ) onto the sofa... I CONFESS- i did not walk to cool down but just sat and drank water until my heart rate recovered (within 1, maybe 1 1/2 minutes)
Sadly, my MAPMYRUN ap was on pause all along so it didn't log it BUT I have manually worked it out on the site at 6.18K- I am thrilled to bits because:
1) I had a mental block with this route- I had walked/ran it during the C25K and remembered the 5 minute run being really hard, and Recall Peter laughing at me saying i sounded like a steam train , shortly before he pulled his calf muscle :/ and,
2) I have only managed a maximum 42 minutes before as I have then reached home and had enough.
This has proved that it can be done and whilst I did run slower at the end, I can do it and i only graduated 9 days ago. I think this will be my once week longer run for a few weeks
Fabulous! thrilled! Happy! Fulfilled! I LOVE this programme and all the lovely people here!
