I started out on C25k because I had lost 6 stone, wanted to get fit and set myself a challenge , this was to maintain/continue my weight loss and to get more healthy . I decided on an open water swim , which somehow developed into me entering a cross sprint triathlon. I thought I could do the 750m swim, and 12 km mountain bike with a bit of training and that the 6 k trail run would be the hard bit . Turned out with c25k I discovered I really enjoy running and although will never be fast can happily plod on and have done a 10 k now which still seems unbelievable. This forum has really helped with friendly and supportive comments and useful advice after both good and bad runs so thanks to you all! Today I reached my goal and completed the triathlon the swim was very choppy due to high winds but I made it , the cycle was good , hilly and got blown about but enjoyed it and the run was great, my total time was 2 hrs 7 mins with a run time of 30 minutes! I am pretty sure it was shorter than the 6 k they said but I'm happy I finished!! So thanks again to all of you who have helped me on here and here's to a faster time next year!
