You might call it that, but for me today my objective was achieved. I started C25K with the aim of surprising my sons by turning out with them on the parkrun when they visit for Christmas. The proviso was that I didn't think I could achieve it, right after W1. But today, with much nervousness, I went to our local parkrun and stood amongst the runners with 'Harriers' or 'RC' on their running gear and became more and more certain that I was in the wrong place. Having discovered I was, at the front of the pack, I moved to the back, just in front of the dogs and pushchairs. Once started, I was surprised to see runners walking in the first couple of km and resolved to keep plodding. Runkeeper told me I was not plodding slow enough for my low level of performance but I ignored it and managed to do the three laps without walking and without being mown down by runners doing the whole thing in 16 minutes something. Amazingly, I was able to feign proper running at the end and finish in a little less than 42 minutes. And I wasn't out of breath. The time is certainly not amazing but better than I managed on the road a week or so ago. Hobbled around all day pleased with myself.
