Hi there, well I did it i was last through the finish line but i got there in the end. As advised by a few of the contributors on health unlocked they said well your on week 7 of the couch to 5k why not go for it? I did ok, was just glad to finish my time for 5k was 48:15, and although I had a lovely women tailgating I just wish I had gone a little slower I was not used to the pace that I was trying to run. my running pace is like a snail ha ha. Next week i am going to run like a snail and prob finish last again but i dont care It is a very hilly parkrun as well I dont mind admitting I stopped to walk a good few times to catch my breath. I got back home had a good stretch, hot bath and got my dressing gown on and lay on the bed to relax, i did however sleep for a good few hours, muscles were floppy and my head pounding, are these symptons normal? I feel like I dont have any more energy today. Also while i would usually be psyching myself up to run for 25 mins as i usually do for this point in c25k i think i only managed 16 before thinking enough is enough i can not go on. is this normal for a parkrun? anyway hope to hear your responses, speak soon.
