There have been some eloquent, moving posts on here recently about deaths of loved ones.
I can't add anything to those, but I had some sad news last night about the unexpected death of a friend.
There have also been some recent posts where people are breaking from C25k and carefully pushing themselves a bit further.
So, I was absolutely full of emotion this morning. It could have expressed itself in any number of ways, and would almost certainly have been negative before I discovered the benefits of running.
I'd got it into my head to try and do 5k, taking it really slowly, and knew that I should stop if it didn't feel right.
And guess what- I did it! 5k nailed, and it was my most enjoyable run so far.
It was the first time for a while that my legs didn't feel heavy and my calves weren't tight- I knew as soon as I started that it was going to happen.
I was welling up a bit on the return walk, but I'm strangely serene now.
Back to the official c25k program next time.
RIP Lisa- look, I managed to run 5k
Out of darkness cometh light
If in doubt, run
