Completed the Week 9 Run 3 on Thursday (how do I go about getting a badge? Are there medals? t-shirts? etc), and really pleased with the feeling of being able to run. I used the GPS on my fitbit watch to keep an eye on time/distance, and was never really convinced I was achieving 5k in the 30 minutes, although maybe not too far off. This morning I attended my first Park Run: wow! Nearly 400 people there! I enjoyed the run immensely. I felt the pace for the first half mile was dictated by the speed of the crowd, but once the runners spaced out I was able to settle into a steady pace, similar to the pace I have been at on week 8 and 9. I was running with my daughter who did the C25K with me - the Park Run was something we talked about doing in about Week 2 - and we had agreed to stick together rather than "race" for a time. Ha! About 3 yards from the finish line she dashed forwards and managed to complete the run 3 places ahead of me :-). I completed the 5k in 35 minutes. I am going to do some more of these Park Runs - it was so much easier running when there are others around you running, and I got no sense of any "racing" going on (apart from my daughter at the end). And most of all, I felt I had plenty left in the tank: I thought I could have gone faster and/or gone further. Time will tell. Keep on running y'all!
