Hi fellow runners,
Ive just finished week 4 of C25K, a little bit disheartened to be fair, i started the 1st 3 weeks, and found it ok, i was walking at 6kmh, and running at 10kmh, but this week, it was tougher, and ive had drop the speeds to 5.5kmh for the walk, and 9.1kmh for the run.
Now whilst im hideously overweight (5ft 7 tall, and 96kg!), i have run before and prior to 2011 i was pretty fit and not so heavy, i was just hoping to be a bit faster, im aiming for 5k in 30mins, and at this rate, thats a long way off, i guess thats what getting older does to you.
But it still feels good, now that the weather is starting to get better, im going to get out on the road more, which should be another challenge.
But week 5 awaits, and at the moment im just going to aim to stay running, however slow i may have to get.
