Week 9 Run 3. Today was the last run of my NHS Couch to 5K. When I started I struggled with the 1 minute runs and having an overall pace of 7:40/Km. Today I ran 5.6Km in 30 minutes with an overall pace of 6:00/Km, around about 5:15/Km when you exclude the warm up and cool down walks.
I was really feeling it between the 20 and 25 minute mark but I slowed down and then pushed on for the last 5 minutes.
Exercise always worried me with Type 1 Diabetes and having a hypo during it. After 27 runs I've not had one hypo during it.
I started on a cold dark morning in January and after 26 mornings, I had one evening, it's still as cold but not dark anymore even on my pre 6am runs on a Tuesday.
I'm now on my own, ditching Laura and running off in to the sunset. I'm still aiming for 3 runs a week. I'm even looking at joining some local running groups to keep things ticking along.
