Week 9 run 3 done itπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

I set myself a goal many years ago to be able run one mile on my 60th. birthday. Just over 7 weeks ago I set myself a goal to finish C25K. Today I did week 9 run 3 and finished thinking about a new conundrum. My 60th is 2 weeks away and now I don’t know if I should stick with the original plan and run one mile just for that day then celebrate πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚or carry on with the 30mins. (Just over 3 miles). Maybe I will see how I feel on the day. To all you C25K runners out there you can do this. #keeponrunningπŸ™‚

Brilliant job, well done! You should do whatever you like on your 60th - it’s your birthday, after all. How about running one mile somewhere gorgeous... or with a lovely pub with some fantastic grub at the end? πŸ™‚

Well done you and happy 60th πŸŽ‰

I'm 63 in June and on w4r3 this week.

I feel fabulous after each run, age is but a number!!

Thanks. You are right it is only a number.

Good luck with your running keep it slow and you will get there. πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Well done. Whatever you decide to do on your big day, hope it’s a happy one. I started in December and hoping to reach week 9 in time for my 64th !! Hope you are going to treat yourself in some way other than running a mile.πŸ˜€xx

Thanks. Good luck with your running I am sure that if you take it steady you will get there for your 64th. πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Do what your body feels comfortable with. I started my couch to 5k during latter end of November 2019 and I have maintained 3 5k runs each week since. I feel that if I keep on top of my fitness regime that I worked so hard to get I will be inspired to try for the 10K at some point.

Have a great birthday!

Reply

Thanks. 10k might be my next goal, not sure if it’s a bit too far though. Good luck with your running.
