It took eleven weeks but I’ve done it!
Thanks for all the messages. I must have been in shock and knackered as that was a pretty brief post!
So yep, I’ve finished, very pleased with myself. Eleven weeks is fine, I was (and still am) running two to three times a week. When I started I had a little 8 week old baby, now I’ve got a slightly bigger 19 week old baby. I can’t beleive I’ve been running so long or had him so long!
Now I can’t say I was bounding along like a springbok today, nor that I feel like I enjoy the run whilst doing it, but I’m sold on the feeling of achievement, and that my weight is going in the right direction.... down! So I’ll be looking into the next step programmes, look at improving my speed and achieving the 5K marker.
Oh and I think I’ll have to find a new route, I was happy with a path along side a field away from passing cars, but (some not all) dog owners are not picking up after Fido. There are turds every two meters, I could ignore that but when I come trotting past a cloud of flies swarms up from each one and my breathing is thrown out of whack as I desperately make sure I don’t consume one, especially because I’ve seen what they were just eating!!
