Hi happy fellow c25k'ers. You asked for an update after I posted last week about my need to get off the honeymoon couch and back to it.
Well I made it back to the UK Saturday lunchtime after an amazing 4 weeks in New Zealand, bag was delayed in Dubai after missing the connection and my boiler was totally busted (not the best after really needing to shower after 24hrs on a plane! Yuk!, plus the house was cold, brrrrr...) Good news is bag arrived 24hrs later and my boiler has just been repaired (broken pump ) now I just need to figure out why my shower is just trickling and not spraying :S
All life things aside and some great Jetlag going on, I made it out tonight for W5 R1 as an ease back into some serious running (cue the rocky music ) I found the first 5 minutes easy since it was slightly downhill, the next 5 were a little harder (and uphill) but the last 5 went by in a blur and I even put on some speed for the last minute. I must say I can't have lost that much fitness and it's definately been easier than the first time I ever did it. I'm definately going to take it slow though, if this forum has taught me anything it's slow and steady keeps you off the IC! Here's to finishing week 5 and doing week 6, then it's onto my own personal plan. I'm also going to try and loose some weight, I may have put on a bit off a food baby since going away and loosing some chub will help my speed. I have a race time to beat from last year and I have until the 9th of June to do it!
Happy running folks!
