My big mission had been to finish the couch to 5k programme by the end of this year. I'm too scared to run in the outside world so I've been running on the treadmill at my gym near my office. Today is my last day in work before Christmas so this was the big one.
I've also been edging closer and closer to running the full 5k in 30 mins but have only managed around 4.5k so far.
So, today I decided to go for it. I put the 1 degree incline on. Walked at 5.5kph for 5 mins to warm up, then went straight for 10kph and settled into my stride.
Could I smash through the pain barrier and do it? Would there be a Christmas miracle?!
No. Definitely not. I did 21 mins and then had to stop.
Ah well. Merry Christmas everyone!
