My reason for starting C25k was that in an effort to restore some work life balance I signed up for a 5k obstacle race. Not being able to run, crawl, climb or do any of the activities needed for the event, this was a bit bonkers!
However, after a couple of months training - and reaching week 8 of C25k, I set out on the run last Sunday. When I arrived at the site I was completely petrified. However , with the support of two of my children I did it and it was great fun! A bit like being 5 years old again!
My reason for posting about this is firstly to thank you all for the advice which helped so much! The run was mainly uphill so I did much walking but on the running bits tried to remember all about going slowly, running, breathing etc. The second reason is that I feel so proud!
But mainly I wanted to recommend muddy runs to you as being fantastic fun! As a 61 yr old, very unfit person I never thought I'd do this. If I can do this anyone can!
Now back to Wk8 !
