I actually feel quite emotional. This was my fourth attempt at c25k and I was never really sure I could do it, gremlins, self doubt, niggling little injuries and life have previously always got in the way BUT NOT THIS TIME! 🎉🎉🎉
It went absolutely great today, I ran along the beach which is my happy place and perfect for graduation. Everything felt good, my legs and breathing etc were just right. It was drizzling which was fine by me as it kept me nice and cool. Funny thing happened 3/4 of the way through, got a phone call which I hadn’t realised had interrupted the app and paused the run so I carried on happily but wondering why I wasn’t getting any countdowns off Laura. Checked my phone and I’d been running for the full 30 minutes, saw the app had paused earlier but because I was feeling so good I decided to resume the app and carried on until I’d done a full 5k then had a nice long cool down walk.
I’m off on holiday to Cornwall tomorrow (don’t even tell me about the weather forecast) and I’m taking my running stuff and hitting those hills (carefully). Then I think I’ll be joining my friend’s 5k running club on a Thursday night, park run on a Saturday and a speed or stamina run on another day. My other half has signed me up for Tough Mudder in September and a friend is trying to persuade me to do a half marathon next year (😱) so I’ll defi be keeping this up and staying on this brilliant forum 😁
Oh and for any of you reading this who are at an earlier stage please know if I can do this, you certainly can I am NOT a natural runner at all!! 😁😁😁
