Good morning all. I have been a graduate of C25k for 2 months now. I've struggled with maintaining my 3x a week running schedule and with the change of season. I've had other stuff taking priority too ( mum receiving some bad news about her health has taken its toll on my time, energy and emotional state!)
However, today I have embraced a new and positive mindset ( for the day at least!) The sun is shining, it's a beautiful autumn day out there, so up I got and off I went!
I wasn't fast, but once I got into my stride, I really seemed to 'get' it today! I'd set my challenge for 4.4km as I'm progressing slowly towards 5k. When I got to 4.3k I thought to myself - I think I could do a bit more today, so decided to go for 4.6k, but that then seemed so close to 5k, I decided to carry on - I'd reached what I set out to do and any extra was a bonus.
Well - I only went and did it!!! It took me 43mins, so no prizes for speed...but I have now not only graduated from the program, I've actually achieved it!!! C25k ☺️☺️☺️
My knees are protesting slightly, my hip is wondering quite what has happened, but here I am on a Sunday morning feeling ready to tackle the week ahead 😃
Love to you all - I'm not on here as often as I should be, but you are all always with me with every step 😘
