On 5th May I started the C25K programme little did I know that 27 runs later on 2nd July I would be able to run continuously for 40 minutes. Yes that is right and not a typo. As I was preparing myself to leave the house I decided to time my run and to run for 40 minutes (the whole of Laura's podcast). I wanted to make sure that I covered 3 miles before finishing the run. I do have my eyes on a Garmin watch once I have completed my Race for Life event at the end of this month.
I can honestly say that the C25K programme is the best invention ever for a newbie runner. I can tell you know that before May I would have said pigs have wings if someone said to me by July you will be comfortable running for 30 minutes and not stop.
Onwards to my next goal post - the ever popular annual 10K race in mid September.
