Hello. It's been a while since I've posted, though I have been lurking around seeing how everyone else is getting on. Since yesterday I hit a bit of a milestone I thought I would write an update about how things have been going for me.
After I graduated c25k I ran 3x30mins a week for a couple of months then moved up to running for 35mins using the c25k+ stamina podcast. I could cover around 3.5k in 30mins and 4.3k in 35mins.
At the beginning of February I started running 5ks. The first one I did took me around 45mins to do. Yesterday night however I ran 5.01k in 38.56 which I am pretty chuffed about. I'm so happy with how many minutes I am shaving off in less than a month. It's amazing how much you can improve in such a short amount of time.
I plan to continue running 5ks and try to get it down to 35mins by the end of next month. If I can manage this then I plan to start slowly increasing one of my runs by 0.5k a week until I hit 10k. And then who knows after that. The sky is the limit
