I’m not usually one for new year celebrations, but I can celebrate that 2017 was the year I graduated from C25K, with the support of you lot, and I’m really proud of that.
So today’s run was a new supposedly flatter winter route down a local bridal path which runs along the old track bed of a railway, closed by Beeching of course. I was aiming for 5k in about 35 minutes. I missed and managed 4.2k. This was mainly due to the fact that the Middlewood Way was at least as wet and muddy as the canal towpath, which was a surprise. I didn’t enjoy the puddle jumping much, scared stiff on tweaking something and setting off the bursitis again, but I persevered for just over 32.
Not the best run, but it was one of those where I felt brilliant afterwards.
So - thank you for all of your support this year. Here’s to the next one!!
