Surprised myself! W8D1

I really wasn't looking forward to this one... 

I'd had a heavy weekend of drinking and excess, rather than running on Sunday, as planned, I put it off a day... then another...

Finally, last night I put my shoes on and wandered off to my local park. After the 5 minute warm up, I set off. I'd decided to take it easy and run at a slower pace than usual.

I had a Radio4 comedy on my headphones and I must've drifted off, I heard a few mile pointers (splits?) but didn't really pay much attention. I did, however, pay attention when I heard a voice tell me I'd run 3 miles in 27' 39"!

3 miles!  That's three MILES!!! 

Ha! Ha! I couldn't be happier! And am now really looking forward to the next run, fingers crossed I can drift off again...

:D

There's a screen grab of the app I use up there ^

Yes. I found it annoying. But thousands of others seem to like it, if you look at the reviews.

Couldn't have done this without the C25k program AND reading all the advice and support on this forum.
