I did it!

3rd run of week 5 completed! Wow I can't believe that I ran for 20 minutes this morning, in spite of Barney the wind starting to make an appearance (not mine the weather). After 4 minutes of running, the headache started again and I thought I'd never get round. However I concentrated on my breathing and posture and the pain eased. I'm not sure why it's happening, but I'll keep an eye on it. I feel so thrilled to have finished week 5.

Get well soon to all you poorly C25Kers, it's the season of colds/flu, so keep warm.

  • Good stuff Mum, glad you made it , its a brilliant achievement .

    Well done to you !

    I used to get really bad headaches too, I think its because I dont tend to drink enough water generally so I am trying to increase my uptake and I did used to feel myself tensing up when I ran , so I try and relax my posture .

    Onwards to Week 6 ! :-) xxx

  • Legendary run! Good for you, you faced the monster and won. Get some rest though, week 6 is still a challenge, nice and steady
