So after my post last week bemoaning that work and life was getting in in the way of my C25K, I managed to fit in W2R2 yesterday, and have R3 in the diary for Friday.

I found I had to slow the pace a little bit yesterday to get through it, but I did get through it.

Once I get this week over with I hope that normal service will be resumed and I can get back on track with 3 runs a week.

I just want to add that the support on here is so fabulous. You guys are great at motivation laced with plenty of common sense and perspective.

  • That's great Sarah. One run at a time......

  • Well done for getting out there ! As others say just take it easy. Even now I sometimes have to slow my pace down to make sure I do the time !

    Probably over xmas most here will have time pressures on devoting time to running !

    I'm worried about my mince pie pressures ! Love mince pies ! May aim is to eat less mince pies this year (could be hard). Aim to run more is easy. Didn't run at all last year !

    Keep us all posted on your progress.

  • I find it really helps putting it my diary because I'm then saying to myself all day at work that I'm going for a run when I get home tonight (or a walk/jog, depending on which week and which run!). I try to put the next week and bit in (although I've had to move them all along from the last week and a half as I've had bronchitis - but they are all still there waiting for me to be well enough to carry on!) - sometimes it's a case of 'I'll have to run that day because the next time can only be....'.

    Slow and steady gets there! :)
