Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I think I must have a different C25K to everyone else as mine only goes to 8 weeks then it's run the 5k.
I have to say I'm not finding it easy at all, I'm up to week 7 and have completed day 2. Which is to run for 25 mins but the last 5 mins is an absolute killer! I'm putting it down to the heat, I live in Barbados where the temperature is a contestant 30 degrees so I run in the evenings when the sun has gone but it's probably still 28/29.
So far in my 25 min run (well more like a shuffle) I'm covering 2.3 miles (3.7km). I'm guessing in time my speed will pick up? I had originally started running to take part in a 5k in December when the run Barbados marathon weekend is on. I'm having a go tomorrow at a Breast Cancer 5k walk or run. It's a very hilly route but my trainer has said to give it a go just for experience, it's a very low key event so I will be walking the uphill bits and taking advantage of the downhill elements!
Wish me luck, I certainly need it!
