I am very proud of the fact that I have completed my first Park Run in a time of 27.10. When I embarked on the C25K I was not a total couch potato, but I could not run for more than 5 minutes without being in considerable discomfort. I stuck to the programme rigorously, running every other day until I got the confidence and the muscles to set off on my own without Laura's reassurance in my ear. It's a great feeling and I'm very grateful to all those on this forum who have offered me encouragement. I am not sure whether I will try to go on to do longer distances - let's face it plodding around can be a bit dull - but I will definitely keep up doing 5k runs as I feel so much better and generally stronger. The only down side - I now have five pairs of trousers which are too big for me!
