Not been on here for awhile but..
After completing the couch to 5k a few months ago I got ambitious and decided to try a 10k...
Then as the event got closer both and my mum got cold feet and decided we weren't gonna even try as it just seemed too far and we were convinced we wouldn't be able to do it.
Anyway, despie not overly training for it we thought we would have a go and we completed it in 1hr 14mins and 8 seconds. I know it's a bit slow but we are really chuffed..on the treadmill it was taking me an hour and 41 mins..dunno y it takes longer on a treadmill...??
Just wanted to share our experience. The atmosphere was really welcoming and Im just really glad we decided to do it in the end. I would encourage anyone else to do the same- even if you think your not quite good enough yet lol.
