I'm a runner!!!

Laura says so! Just did my wk6,r3 and managed a few minutes more after the warm down five minutes and before walking home.

I missed my Parkrun this morning due to friend being sick and me getting the message too late to walk to the park, but I went an hour later and ran the Parkrun course on my own, doing my c25k session plus a little bit more after a break. So week 7 feels completely doable :) . I even felt that my pace was getting a tiny bit less snail-like, especially on the bits where the path slopes down ever so slightly.

There are a few of us at the same stage, so good luck with the rest of your runs :) :)

  • Well done you RUNNER!

  • Thank you! Feeling a bit achey now but very pleased with myself :)

  • I'm with you SlowWorm2016 . I've just posted almost the same thing. Well done. I bet you're as chuffed as I am. I've not started Park Run yet. My best friend has been running for years. I've not told her that I'm doing C25k and in a few weeks time hope to surprise her and probably myself by joining her at Parkrun. Good luck for Week 7.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • Well, Laura's ALWAYS right! :) Well done. It flies by from here, you'll graduate before you know it! :)

  • It's unbelievable isn't it? A real runner and only a few weeks into the programme. When Laura told me that, I didn't believe it and to be honest still don't even now!

  • I remember that moment, it's great isn't it? Congrats, and well done on running the PR route on your own, I think that's a brilliant idea.
