Having graduated a couple of weeks ago I have been on several runs since. I enjoyed putting on my own music and I tried to achieve the golden 30 minutes 3 times a week. Various things happened over those couple of weeks resulting in me not having very enjoyable runs in general - I had lost my mojo.
Today I decided I really must go for a run as the weather had cleared enough that it wasn't immediately raining and I had no excuses left (previously it had been too wet, too cold, children around, waiting in for a parcel etc. etc). I thought if I needed to stop I would and then use it as interval training. I was determined not to get disheartened on this run.
As it turned out I ran all the way without any intervals and did my first 5k today! I am so pleased as back in September I struggled to run for 90 seconds at a time and I've now just done 5k!
To anyone currently following the programme I urge you to persevere with it; take extra time if needed to achieve the week's goal and you will get there. Believe in the programme as its results are incredible.
Who would have thought eh - me running 5k?! Get in!!!
Happy running people!
