Finished C25K a few weeks ago now and have just been maintaining 3 x 30 minute runs a week.
My mum started her C25K journey a few weeks ago now, and although she has struggled she’s carried on like a trooper! So much so that she’s now on week 6 going onto week 7 and is starting to catch me up!
I’m over the moon and so proud of my mum! But it has given me that extra kick up the bum to start increasing the distance and start getting closer to 5K.
So I went out today determined to do 5K, I planned my route so I knew I’d definitely cover this distance. It felt really daunting at first until I’d completed the ‘new’ part of my run which added the extra half mile to make up my route to 5K.
But I did it! I even changed my route and ended up running up a rather big hill which was challenging but I managed it! I did feel super tired near the end but the thought of reaching 5k kept me going and reminded me how much I enjoy having a goal to achieve each run.
I got to 5k and decided to carry on a little bit further towards my house and ended up running 3.28 miles instead of just 3.1!
Feeling super pleased with myself 😁
Keep going everyone, regardless of which week you are on your doing amazing.
Sending love to you all x
