I can’t believe I’ve just completed my penultimate run 😀. Three months ago If you’d told me I’d be in the gym after working two 12 hour shifts followed by a training course away from home I just wouldn’t have believed it.
After a day in the classroom getting to grips with the intricacies of airborne satellite data communications a few of us had decided that the gym next to the hotel might be a good way to wind down.
Having come prepared with my running gear (kind of hoping that the opportunity would arise) I immediately set my sights on the treadmill and completing W9R2.
Although I was tired, today felt really solid. A welcome change from the previous couple of runs which I’d really struggled with. Not sure if it was my fitness improving or the change of location but I finished the 30 minutes feeling good so pushed on to 5K in a respectable (for me) 37 minutes.
It just goes to show how a programme like C25K can successfully change a once sedentary sloth to a (In the words of Jo Whiley) skipping Gazelle.
I can’t quite believe that the next run will be my graduation! No way would I have got this far without reading all the wonderful posts, support and motivation that this forum provides.
Proud to call myself a C25K runner 👟🏃♂️✈️
