I did it!! W9R3!! Im so proud of myself And after the disastrous practice run it felt amazing (well afterwards - during the run was still pretty tough)
Now to keep the motivation happening and not slack off... I think the structure of the C25K really helped so I might make up a schedule for the future - does anyone have suggestions for ways to keep it motivating and interesting?? For now my plan is just to slowly increase time and/or speed to finally get to the magical 5K - I am only managing just over 3.5K at the moment, so plenty of room for improvement!
