Well I've done it!... to be honest I've over done it and gone a bit silly today and will probably feel the results tomorrow but.... I set of about 7:30 this morning. Warmed up first so started running as soon as I tuned in to Laura and Julie. I was hoping to set a pb to beat the 5k I did on Sat at Parkrun which was 37:11 mins... No chance! It was soon clear I was having a slow day. "Never min" I thought, "I'll go for a bit longer".
I've a number of circuits I can run along local road and a nearby park. So I did one... felt ok so added another.. when I realised I'd done 7.5 k I thought I might as well carry on to 10. THIS WILL NOT BE A REGULAR THING.... YET. I was MEGA SLOW and was running (and this is my definition.... others would say ambling along in a jogging sort of style!!!) for 1 hour 28 mins. I ran through run 9-3 then I was back into week 1 (ah the nostalgia of those 60 second runs) then half way through week 2.
Yes I've been a bit silly and overdone it. But on my 51st birthday I've done something I couldn't have done on my 41st. My wife has said she feels she is getting the old me back... I am now making her a cup of tea before reminding her she promised to buy me a C25K t shirt.
Regards to all of you in Laura Land... especially us tortoises!
