Week 5 run 3 done...

β€’14 Replies

... and I didn't want to stop!

I can't believe this. I just ran for 22 minutes non-stop. Backwards and forwards, on a pebbly white road in the Umbrian hills, 55 years old, 5'2" and 87 kg, never run before C25K - *couldn't* run, it's impossible, I don't have the lung capacity, the willpower, "I'm built for comfort not speed" (that bit may still be true lol.)

Well I can run now. I *do* have the willpower, I *do* have the lung capacity and I have the C25K app, my mate Sarah Millican and you gorgeous lot. Thanks for the support guys xxx

Brilliant, my stats (age etc) are similar to yours and I am starting to feel re-energised. I finished wk 9 yesterday and I bet you can do it as well, we could be virtual running mates, keep up the good work.

Yay! Thanks!

Congrats! It’s surprising what you can do when you put your mind to it 😊 keep up the good work! Xx


It’s a monumental run is that! Well done! πŸ’ͺ🏽
