Yesterday due to an unplanned overindulgent Saturday night I reverted back to being a CP.
Thankfully I had booked today off so after a leisurely breakfast I set off for my run. Not feeling physically strong after my lazy Sunday I had to dig deep for the mental strength to complete the run. It worked, I did it, again I'm not sure how or where this inner strength has come from but nothing has ever gripped me on a regular basis for 7 weeks before.
I've done yoga, Pilates, hiked, climbed mountains, skiied but it's not a regular thing and I get bored or suffer an injury which makes me back off.
This has been (on the whole) running every other day for seven weeks. For me I think the ability to vary my runs keeps me interested and the structure and challenge of the program pushes me at the right pace allowing me to achieve realistic goals. I now know 5k is achievable, I may not be a pretty sight at the end (see today's cracking photo finish) but I will do it!! Thank you C25K guys you are all amazing XX
