Those of you who have read my previous posts will now I am bit of a tortoise speed wise, not that that's a big problem as I am still proud of graduating last week.
Today I decided not to think about pace but to try and aim for 5k regardless of how long it takes me, I have more time at weekends, so off I went at 7.30 this morning, it had stopped raining, so that was a bonus.
I went at a steady slow pace and I did it, I actually managed a full 5k, I felt like s real runner as another runner waved across at me..... I got home with a big smile on my beetroot face☺️
I also had a health check at work this week and at 53 I was told that I was very healthy and fit, my pulse and BP very low, resting pulse of 53 and cholesterol and diabetes risk below the national average so really pleased.
I may not of lost the weight through running, walking and zumba, but I am probably fitter now then I have ever been.
Anyone looking around thinking can I do this - yes you can! And believe me it's worth it.
Happy Sunday everyone
