I started C25K on 27th May last year & this morning I ran 10km in 1 hour 19 minutes. Not the fastest time in the world but to me this is a massive achievement. Over the last year I've lost over 4 stone, swum about 100 km as well as running. Not bad going for a woman in her very late 40's. I had been happy enough running about 5km 3 times a week but as the weather started to improve I decided to challenge myself a bit more. I added 0.5km a week to my Saturday morning run & today I got to 10km. I would like to get a bit quicker so before I try & increase the distance again. Although I felt a bit tired at the end of it I think I could maybe have pushed a bit harder - that's my aim for next week.
