Okay here it goes. It was two years ago when I began this program and if fell by the wayside. I kept up with little bits of fitness by cycling to work and back etc. Well once again we have moved just before new year and are in a new area. My boyfriend and I have not been totally nonactive. I joined a basketball team and we both go for Frisbee training. A number of weeks ago we were visiting his family where his sister who is training for a half marathon spoke about her parkruns and how brilliant there were. This chat with my many previous chats regarding parkrun my boyfriend and I decided to go and do our one. This was a couple of weeks ago. I was feeling okay before hand however was disappointed with myself. I let my pacemaker get out of sight and began to pace myself with other runners. I also didn't jog the whole the way, i broke into walking and jogging. This Saturday just gone however (having only completed 1 run in between which I used W3 of C25K for) I managed to keep with the pacemaker (same time aim as before 35mins) and I jogged the 1st lap and into the second altho it was coming into a head wind. I did have to break the 2nd lap down into some intervals however I didn't loose sight of my pacemaker and my time came in 34:54 mins :).
To keep me going and motivated I am aiming to do a 10k later this year in Sept for a charity very close to my heart.
I want to do it right so any suggestions for building strength would be awesome. I struggle with this both completing and motivation.
Thanks for reading,
