I love my running. I started this year at the end of Easter and by wk5 I was hooked. By the end of the course I was both hooked and amazed at the progress I was making.
It is now 4.5 months since I completed C25K and I am now running at an average pace of 6:25 per km. I can run 5km in 29:40 but have not yet managed 10km in under an hour. My longest distance is 14.5km @6:35 / km. I run 3 times a week and have signed up for my first HM in March next year. I am 46yrs old and weigh in at 103.5kg which still makes me obese albeit with a radically changed body shape.
This is all really good and, looking back, I can see the progress I've made, but what I would really like to know is a bit more about what the future could look like. I see all these wonderful people on this forum (juicyju, Misswobble, poppypug, Bazza, gettingfitter, etc) and I cannot help but wonder 'how was it for you?'. How long have you been running and what improvements did you notice in your endurance and pace along the way? Do you feel that you are reaching, or have reached, a plateau and if so, did you manage to push through it?
I realise that everyone is different but you guys inspire me and I would love to read more about the art of the possible in running.
With a heartfelt 'Thank You'.
