Thank you for all of the inspirational posts on this forum. I am sure they contributed to me reaching the final run of C25K. I am excited to keep it up now. A friend has challenged me to run a 10K next May, which I would never, ever have considered before. Now I’m thinking, maybe I could do it!?!
The hardest part was around about week 7, when I decided to go off piste and change my route! A long hill finished me off and I didn’t complete the run. This really knocked my confidence. Reading a few posts on here, however, I picked myself up and did the run again successfully (on my usual route!).
The advice to start slow and build up speed towards the end of the run has been very useful, in the last few weeks. Also, listen to your breathing during the run. If you are breathing too heavily, slow up a bit until it settles down.
Here’s to staying motivated to run through the winter 🥴.
