I started a challenge at the start of January to do 5K every day for the month. I would run one day and walk the next. After not running during November and December I had lost my fitness and could no longer run 5K without a walking break. A month later I am getting back my fitness. Today there was a 5K run for all who were doing the January challenge. It was a lovely run. A real family event with every age, fitness level, shape and size taking part. About 1,000 participants took part, people walked and ran with 5 seperate groups.
Group 1 were all walkers and they started first. 5 mins later next to go were the runners who would aim for 40 mins and then every 5 mins the 35, 30 and 25 min groups took off. I was in the 35 minute group. I finished in 32 minutes and was thrilled. 😀 I have another 3 days and 15K to go. It was a great way to get back into the swing of running. I also got a T-Shirt and a medal. Oh yeah, almost forgot, this afternoon I went shopping for new jeans. I have been a size 34 for many many years. Today I bought a pair of 32 size waist, and I’ll still need a belt. 😁
