So today I did my last official run of the programme and can now call myself a graduate!!
I have had lots of highs, a few 'mehs', one or two lows and a hell of alot of surprises. To be honest, I thought before starting that I would probably make it to week 3 and give up. I've surprised myself beyond belief and feel so much healthier and fitter for it.
It's been a challenge, I can run for 30 minutes but it still feels so hard and I've never really regained that feeling of elation that I got on wk 5, r3.
But there is no way I'm going to give up now. I'm going to carry on doing 30 min runs for a couple of weeks and then work on distance and then eventually speed. I'm desperately slow, I can only run 3.7km in 30 minutes and that is hard going but then I'm only 5ft with little legs!!
If I wasn't doing sober for october I'd crack open a bottle of wine so I'll settle for a self congratulatory dance around the house instead.
Thanks to everyone in this community, whilst I haven't contributed much, I have visited everyday and its what's inspired me to continue.
Happy running people x
