All my life I've loved running. Pounding the tarmac, just me against myself and the elements. Oh the sense of freedom.
Popycock!! Always though running was dumb. Hated it as a kid and haven't done in since. At least until I started this program.
Yet here I am at the end of C25k. Of all of my runs to have a tech failure, this was the run. So despite pushing as hard as I could, my run wasnt recorded. So, just so I never forget Wk9 R2 and think of it as a stepping stone, the stats above are for that run instead.
I'm so grateful to my wife Snowgdss for helping me get through this. She has been battling with seasonal germs and a nasty foot injury (possibly a bone fracture) so shes been frustrated to not be able to get out and run. But she'll be back at it soon! You can do it babes x
I'm feeling stupidly pleased with myself. I was so embarrassed at how unfit and unhealthy I'd got and was really shocked at how much I struggled to complete Wk1 R1. So today, as I struggled up the hill for the final minute, it was nice to imagine you lot at the finish line waiting to cheer me on and my wife there with a big hug and glass of chilled champagne.
If you're just starting out on C25k, stick at it. The plan really does work and the people on this forum are amazing. You might struggle sometimes, you might have 'practice runs', but do carry on. Everybody is here to pick you up when you fall, and pat you on the back when you succeed.
So that's it. Job done and I can go back to the couch now 😆🍷. Only joking. This is part of my weekly routine now and long may it continue.
Happy running everybody and thank you!
