And here's the full mobot to prove it!
I can honestly say this is one of the best things I've done. At school I hated running, and I was very un-sporty - always the number 11 batsman, and made to field in a position that didn't matter too much, always the last person to be picked for the football games etc etc.
Week 1 - I never believed I'd be able to do 30 mins given the struggle it was to run for one minute at a time. But I'm delighted to have got through it - not repeating any runs, and not having to stop when I was supposed to be running (apart from once for a few seconds when I got lost!)
And this community has been an immense inspiration - just to read people's inspirational stories and reading of folks overcoming struggles, gremlins etc.
Next thing is to attempt to run 5k (today I covered just over 5k including the warm up walk, and the 5k Strava gong went at about 38 minutes after the start of the workout. I actually ran for 31 minutes so I could catch up with my wife who was walking across the bridge path across the reservoir.
I'll try and post some observations later about what I've learnt - but at the moment I'm just too ridiculously chuffed to see that little grey icon saying "Graduate" after my name to put down anything coherent.
