Week 8 Run 1

Hi everyone,

So I did my W8R1 this afternoon, I wasn't particularly looking forward to it as it had another three minutes added taking the run to 28 minutes.

I still find it hard between 5-10 minutes in but after that I seem to settle in to a nice run.

I managed to run the whole 28, increased my distance to 5.6k (including warm up and cool down walks) and my best kilometre was run in 6 minutes 28 seconds.

I feel like I'm making good progress and I'm loving it.

I think I'm getting addicted ๐Ÿ˜€

Cant wait for R2 on Wednesday.

  • That's really, really good going! Well done :)

  • Thank you, I'm really rather chuffed with how it's going.

  • Well done graduation is near. Have you got plans for after c25k

  • Thank you, no real plans yet for after graduation.

    I think I will carry on with 3 x 30 minute runs per week for a while to work on my technique, then sign up for some park runs.

    I'm probably going to do the Birmingham colour too.
