Well I did my graduation run and have written my first post ever!!!. What can I say, I have been a parasite, taking in all your support over the weeks. Thank you everyone. The reason I didn't post is I simply didn't think I could do this. At Week 5 run 3. The dreaded 20 min run I was spotted by some colleagues, who howled at how slow it was possible to run. I also knew if I repeated any runs, that this would be my excuse not to proceed, so I made myself run each run to the very end
Guess what I not only finnished this! but:-
1. I ran 3.2 miles in 30 mins - so also achieved the 5 k. Not too shabby for a " slow runner". I was amazed because although it felt a mighty long way, I really wasn't running that fast.
2. My systolic blood preesure is now down from 160 to 120 ( normal )
3. I am a very different shape from when I started
4. I can run 5 K in 30 mins. - what a shocker!! Oh and just had my 51 birthday. Can I just say it once more - I graduated - I can run for 30 mins.
Blimey. It's so true, if I can do this anyone can. PMA. Positive Mental Attitude. Might even have the confidence to post again !!!!
