Sooo chuffed. I looked up a 10 km running program yesterday morning after a few days off for various reasons (one including a broken ankle and a mountain rescue helicopter - not for me I hasten to add but for the friend I was walking with) I thought I would give it a try.
It said running three times a week choose a long run day and gradually increase this run - 6km, then 6.5 km etc. So, not really believing I could do it, I set out for my run. 5 min walking warm up, 6km run, 3.5 min cool down (would have been 5 mins too if there hadn't been a boiler issue at home!). I can't quite believe it, just a few months ago running for 3mins was difficult enough and there I am running 6km - 6KM!!!!!! Have I said it enough...6KM!!!!!
As you can see I am rather pleased with myself.
Anyway, anyone starting out on C25K - this program really works and you too will be boasting like me about how far you can run in a few months time. Have a great week of running people!
