Couch to 5K

Awkward!!!

Ok did not really think this one through!! Had Dentist appointment no problem...where I run is literally over the road so I thinks ok no probs can take my stuff quick change in the car and off I go. There I am struggling to get my leggings on under my skirt etc and a very lovely lady is peering in the window asking if I am going as spaces are at a premium...no, off she goes carry on trying another kind lady...excuse me are you lights on? Yes it’s fine as soon as turn ignition off they will go out, but thank you!! This is beginning to turn into a really bad idea!!

Wear your running stuff to the dentists with pride. People will be impressed at your dedication: combining two of some people's worst nightmares together.

Did you manage to do the run in the end?

Still too slow but am gonna Have stop obsessing about the stats people put up and try and be happy with what I am doing...after all 11 weeks ago I could never have run for over 3.5k in half an hour I would have been in a heap on the side of the cycle path. Just keep repeating that paula!!

Slow is brilliant.. I am the Original Grey Snail..it is still my favourite speed... my long runs on Sundays are the best, because they are slow and long :)

I just run... and run.. and run :)

Distance and time, sometimes can really make us forget what the running is really about..For me, I run and then I ramble.. I have logged every one of my runs.. most have no onetime of speed..:)

You are amazing... be proud :)
