So glad to have completed W9R3 tonight. On a big new treadmill in a gym on a big boat I'm visiting. Had initial difficulties altering from imperial to metric at first but soon got underway with 0.5k warm up. I was so close that I continued for an extra 3 minutes to make it to 5k. My first 5k ever, in 33 minutes. I'm so delighted. Never thought I'd be able to do this let alone feel so empowered and slightly pleased with myself. I may still be old, I may be knackered, but I'm certainly less fat and more happy. Reckon I've lost about 20 lbs over the last 9 weeks.
So I plan to keep running 3 times a week, maybe do more of it outside, maybe chuck the beer for a month to see what happens, but am not so keen on returning back to that couch! Any hints and tips for new graduates please let me know.
Thank you for your support!
Others, believe in yourself and be inspired!
