Super chuffed!

Super chuffed!

I did my first ever non-stop 10K this morning, can't believe I actually did it! Not super fast, when was I ever super fast, but steady, and I'm delighted! It was a lovely day for running, the first crocuses are just showing their first shoots along The Backs (backs of the colleges) there were loads of people out and about, crazy tourists veering around on rented bikes, rowing teams out on the Cam and ME doing my first 10K!! Did I tell you I've done 10K?

Ooooooo CG I am soooo jealous! Well done that's absolutely fantastic! Did you do it completely nonstop with no walking? Slow is good imo. You must be feeling over the moon (well that's what all the foopballers say on the talky bits in the evening, isn't it?). Me? Still on the IC. Thinking about maybe 20 mins on Monday ...

Yes non stop apart from a few seconds waiting for traffic lights. I'm sorry you're still injured, I've come down with a rotten cold now, I'm amazed I managed that yesterday.

Well done!! I'm hoping to get to 10k soon - probably at about your time too. I couldn't care less about 'speed'. It's great to see tge 1st signs of Spring we've got crocuses popping their heads up & even some brave daffodils in flower. Really perks you up doesn't it? Happy running!

Fantastic Curly... that really is a run to remember, even more so that it was non-stop. Hope I can do the same later when I do a long run. :-)

Oh, I remember that feeling. You must and should feel pretty proud of yourself. Never mind the pace, it's not important. The thing now is to make it a regular part of your programme. It took me a whole month before I attempted a second one after the effort of the first, but I do them all the time now. It's a great distance where you can take in the sights and sounds as you go if you want to and, if you're like me, not feel the pressure of "I must go under 30 minutes" for 5k.

Congratulations!!!!!

Not sure Ian, for the moment - I'll be back in France for the summer soon, I wanted to do the 10K as pretty much there I only have 2 routes - 3.5K and 5K - at least I can do 2 x the 5K one now..Maybe next winter I can think about something longer..

How did I miss this post?? Congratulations Curly, this is fantastic. You're a walking talking advert for the power of c25k and the c25k+ podcasts. Well done you! I'm super impressed and more than a little bit jealous. Go Curly!!!!

Thank you AM, I am feeling very proud ATM, and also a little humble, cracked PR last week too, with not a little help from Madge, after my dire first attempt.C25K is brilliant, and so is this group xxx x
