Ran 4 miles - awesome!

I got invited on Friday in the pub to join two runners in my village at 9.00 am Sunday for a run - I've never run with two people before and they were fit!! - So I did turned up - they talked all the way! - I just stuck in there and kept playing hard rock on the Ipod to keep me going - it was v v hard!! but no walking - I'm amazed that I did it and spent the rest of the day pretty spaced out - weird brain - may be sore tomorrow but am now addicted!!

Is this couch to 5 km in a single bound? I know one mate of mine who could do that tomorrow, and then go back to more important things like drinking enough beer and eating enough marbled red meat to maintain a decent quality of life, but people like that are rare. Lucky you if you're one of them.


God no - 15 months on couch p to 5k then graduated about 3 months ago - been running the wk. 9 for about 3 months and then got invited to go running with others - never run with other people before today - but still eat steak and drink wine - been a bit spaced out today though since the run - will I be able to move tomorrow!! Work out at gym though so that probably helps


Oh well, then at least you don't have to produce special witnesses to vouch for you being mortal. Good on you for being so persistent. Looks like it's paid off. It's a big enough jump between X km in 30 min and 4 miles. Must be the hard rock! :D
