Have not posted in an age but I like to come on and update as I found it inspirational when i started on this journey. I have been running a year. I graduated from the c25k in August. My first 5k were coming in at just under 50 minutes. I have worked hard and have continued to run consistently and I can now do my local parkrun in 30.50. I am desperate to try and do a sub 30. I am starting on proper cross training work and some strengthening and some speed work so I really would like to have managed it by the end of the summer!
I have also run a 10k and did the Great Midlands Fun Run which was 8.5 miles. I managed that in an hour and 34 minutes so I was pleased with that.
Other than my sub 30 parkrun I am also entered for the Anglesey Half marathon in March of next year. I am really looking forward to that and will start properly training for it at the end of the Summer. My next big goal is the Liverpool Rock n' Roll Marathon but I am thinking 2017 for that
I love running. It has changed my life. It has also changed my families life as we are all a lot more active now.
I just would like to say keep on going to anyone who might be struggling or not sure if they can do it.
