Hi fellow runners, and Happy New Year to you all!
I've just got back from my first run of 2019, 11 days since my last run (naughty) and a year to the day since completing C25K. It's amazing to think that just a year ago I completed that last 30 minute run of week 9 with tired legs and all out of breath, when today after an 11 day break I could run an easy 6.5k in 35 minutes and held a conversation all the way round.
2018 saw my 50th birthday, my fitness level improved dramatically and I dropped almost 1st in weight. I went from running 5k in 30 minutes to 5k in just over 21 minutes, my longest run was 15.5k and I ran a total of almost 900km.
Goals for this year: Reach HM distance, run a 5k Park Run in under 20 minutes, run 10k in under 45 minutes..........
To all who are either on the programme or thinking of doing it, I urge you to push yourself to complete it. Believe me, you will be glad you did.
Keep up the good work!
