I reckon it would have been about 6pm this evening a year ago that I first stepped out for W1R1 - crickey, just how hard were each of those 8 single minute runs. But I was determined and stuck with the amazing programme, and graduated - just the best thing ever.
I haven't reached any dizzy heights, but I run 3 times every week and am fitter and healthier than ever (generally!). I am training towards 10k and am running in the Bristol event on 31 May.
And what a lovely morning for an anniversary run.. clear skies, sunshine, no wind.. just run past the smokey man with his husky dogs (joined today by his wife and a new puppy) when I somehow lost my footing and fell! I've always worried about doing that but never have until today. I was a bit shaken, but ok. I got up, gave myself a quick once over and started off again - slowly. Took a few minutes to get my breathing back, but it was fine.
A quick check of the garmin shows 5.12k in 37:08 minutes. I've been quicker but currently have a chesty cough so am taking it steady.
Have a great day everyone :). Off to shower now.. then to work..
