Is there room for a long-time lurker here? Months ago I started the C25K programme but for numerous reason it when I got to W5 it all seemed a little too difficult so I went wayyyyyyy off-programme.
I've been running three times a week and the runs have been getting longer and the walks shorter but it was all still off-programme. This week I figured it was about time to get back on track and, today was the day scheduled for the, very scary, W5R3 run.
And I did it! And I'm still alive to tell the tale! And, in all honesty, although it was hard it wasn't actually harder than I'd imagined it'd be.
When I was done I had a long-ish walk back to the car and I was very hot and the area I run in is remote ... it's alongside a reservoir and on a Wednesday there's never anyone else there. So I stripped off my t-shirt and yomped back to the car wearing my hot pink shorts and sports bra confident that I wouldn't see a soul.
Who knew that today would be the day that the local police helicopter would use the reservoir for training? If my face wasn't red from the run then it certainly was after the third fly-by from the police :/
I'm thinking that Laura didn't have these challenges!
