I can't really believe it... But at the ripe old age of 55 I made a new year resolution to run 5k whilst under the influence of several prosecco's and roars of laughter from my sons. I heard myself say oh so confidently how I would follow the plan and achieve it, deep down not really believing I'd get past week 1! I still think it's someone's else's voice shouting from the front door to my husband, "I'm going out for a run." This very morning I listened to Laura's words of encouragement and ran week 9, in fact over 6k, not very fast but it was steady, the birds were singing and I felt like I'd run a marathon.
So a big thank you to all of you, as I've been so encouraged by all the honest posts and hearing much of the same setbacks with highs n lows as I had experienced. I had serious thoughts of giving up and starting new plan... '5k to couch' !, but somehow I've graduated. I couldn't have done it without you all and will continue to read and see where journey takes me next.
