Well that was much better, nice slow pace, 4k, 34 mins!!! πŸ˜€ breathing fine, the rain stopped for me, not too cold, no gloves tonight, dont think i'm cut out for speed! 🀣

Actualy, it's mad i'm saying a comfortable 34 min run, blimey wouldnt have said that 12 weeks ago! πŸ₯΅

Anyway, next run sat morning, might try a slow 🐌🐌🐌 6k, will see how i feel, as i'll be 57 by then!!! 🀣

Going great guns Peter44 that's a whole heap of consolidation runs under your belt, perhaps maybe take a look at bridge to 10k and moving up gradually towards that new badge πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ

Might start with the magic 60 mins, then head towards 10k, but slowly!!! 🀣

Great stuff! I love it, comfortable 34 minute run! No running for me, snow and ice and I’m not that brave. Hopefully back out at the weekend 🀞🏻

Well done for heading out and getting a good run in- it feels more enjoyable when you take it steady and don’t hammer it. I was home late from work so going to have to go for my run tomorrow instead - have a good birthday meal tomorrow! πŸŽ‚ 🍷

Brilliant!

Comfortable. Running. Breathing fine. Running. 34 minutes. Running. Age 56-57. Running. Nice slow pace. Running. Say no more! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨

Happy birthday run coming up too. Hope it’s more of the same!

Thanks, sitting here with my girls, talking about what a mad year it's been, furloughed for 5 months, but now running, so not all bad!!! πŸ˜€

Careful now. I might be overtaking you. You might even be overtaking me in age if you're not careful.

We are hard on ourselves rather. I would never have said 3 months ago "still less than 4K, that's disappointing" more like "are you joking!"

It's mad how far we've all come, i even mentioned 60 mins/10k to IMC50, what am i saying!!! 🀣, probably getting a bit ahead of myself, tue nights run, told me, slow down!!! πŸ₯΅Ummmm, overtaking you in age 🀣

Happy Birthday Peter, I'm on CR3 and turned 64 in October - inspired by your great progress although I really don't know how i got where I am!- couldn't run for 60 seconds when I started C25K in September. It's pretty unbelievable😱- keep running, you're doing great.

Hi Peter . Well done. I’m glad you have found a more sustainable pace. I will follow your lead on that. I’ve decided to skip 2 runs to really give my muscles a chance to heal after over doing it and will run a gentle 30 min on Saturday then hopefully back to 3 runs next week. I read on here somewhere that you keep your current fitness for one week . So hopefully Saturday will go smoothly .

Peter44
Peter44Graduate in reply to jimytwo2

That sounds a very sensible idea, i felt much better after last nights run, i think my body is saying, hang on, you've not run like this, for probably 30 years!!! 🀣

Belated Happy Birthday - I hope you really enjoyed it. Are you out running in this today?? I know we keep mentioning how far we've come and I do laugh when we say things like .... I only managed 4k or only 15 minutes to go or even thinking of the 10K plan.

I do hope that Newbies read this and realise that it is achievable and that we also had lots of issues in week 1, but look at us now.

Peter44Graduate in reply to shuffleido
