Well folks, I feel like the queen of the C25K treadmill! This thing... It WORKS!
I was slow, as usual, but steady... I could breathe, and I ran a fast (for me!) extra 90 seconds after lovely Laura said I was done... just because I'm a rebel, I felt like it and I could!!! Unbelievable. Really. I am so shocked. This morning I ran for 21 mins and 30 seconds on my short little legs. Never thought I'd write that sentence in my life!
Next week, I'm heading back outside for at least 2 of the 3 wk 6 runs. Enough is enough. Not a single knee twinge on today's run, I'm ready and I feel sort of marvellous. It's time the streets saw my red, sweaty face again. I expect it will be tougher after these last 3 wks on treadmill, but I'm feeling more glass half full, than empty, these days, I think I can do it.
Work now gets in the way for me, I'll be working away mon and tues and not able to run. So it's either Tuesday night if not too late home (though I'm not great with evening runs after a 3 hr drive) or weds for wk6, run 1 for me.
Go us week 5 ers!!! And Old Floss, did you make it out today? How was your run? X
Thanks to all for your support, grads - you're the inspiration, newbies - I speak the truth, this really does work, go for it!
