Well....I’ve just finished W9R3 and I’m over the moon! Never thought I’d be able to achieve that. I’m nowhere near 30 mins for the 5K distance, but I have ran a few 5K’s now with my local running club- which I hesitate to join as I’m by far the slowest but they are so supportive and positive! From my first time of 41:52 and have now managed to get it down to 36:43. I don’t find it easy by any means and sometimes get disheartened as the “30 mins” looks so out of reach. My question now to you wonderful people is - do I keep trying to lower my 5K time or should I start to run for longer and accept it’s going to be slower? I’ve heard a lot about “Jeffing” basically a walk-run-walk method - the same as C25K teaches us. Now I’m hooked with this running lark my aim is to run 10K. I’m not competitive, and I’m doing this really for my own well being, both physically and mentally. I love the buzz you get when the run is over and when the going gets tough that’s what I try to focus on. Knowing that I’m not competitive I have done a “virtual race” and got my first medal! Some might think it’s an odd thing to do, but for me it was a positive decision and now my first medal is sitting there makes me want to add more to my collection. Any thoughts or comments will be appreciated! Thank you for all the support so far!!
