Week 9 First Run

β€’6 Replies

I was quite worried waking up this morning, because last night it was very cold and wet and I didn't want to be running in the rain today.🌧️

When I pulled the curtains back and saw the clear blue sky I knew I was going to have a great run. πŸ˜‰πŸŒ„

I set out and made my way to the old railway trail with my brisk 5 minutes walk. It was then time to start my first 30 minute run; it was a bit slippery under foot so I was being a bit more careful, but was still able to get into my regular stride. πŸƒ

I went just passed the old railway station at Milton of Campsie and Jo said, "That's great, you have 10 more minutes to run." this let me know that for that section I had run it a bit faster than the previous runs. At that point I felt that I could run for ages.

I am really enjoying this, and can't wait for Wednesday to come, but I will be sensible.

I really love me this community.

Well done,amazing how far we have come


Congratulations BlueCal52 on almost completing C25K, 😊 πŸƒ only two more runs until you graduate. I know Milton of Campsie very well indeed, I have cycled the whole of that old railway line from Kirkintilloch to Strathblane and passed the old station at Milton of Campsie many times especially during the 80's and 90's when I was a little younger. Good luck with your πŸŽ“ graduation runπŸƒπŸ‘


Yey..well done BlueCal52 that's amazing...and who wouldn't enjoy a run under that beautiful sky??? It's calling all runners!!! Not long now...like.you say, be sensible & don't set off like a rocket!!!


Great run. Good that you’re still being sensible, nothing is worth the IC! Enjoy the next two!


What a lovely place to run. I am sure just the scenery must give you an extra lift. Onwards to graduation!


Well done you're doing great 😊
