Couch to 5K

Argh! Nerves

I'm on week 9 & I decided to try a park run as my w9r1. I've not actually run 5km yet so I'm a bit anxious about it. But I'm going to go very slow & try & make the difference.

I'm really nervous!!

I decided to do the South Manchester park run in the end so hopefully it'll go ok.

At least it's not bucketing it down which helps.

Keep saying to myself: It doesn't matter if I walk. The main thing is to finish!

Wish me luck!!

Its 8.50am so I am thinking of you. Am sure you will take it nice and slow - your aim being to finish not just run for 30 mins like Laura is asking you to do. It is completely do-able - I did a local 5k as my W9R1 - you will be buzzing in about another hour!!!

So how did it go? I found it a bit of hard going today - I think my hard run on Thursday was still in my legs!
