Do I really only have 3 runs left? I can't believe I am so close to the end.
My second run of Week 8 felt like the best one actually - I got a runners high and felt strong - though I run later in the day on my other runs. The last couple of weeks have really taught me a lot about my body and how it reacts, and the rest and care it requires before the run. It's been amazing to learn, and also to be proud of my body for getting me through those 28 minutes.
I am planning a month of consolidation once I complete. I really hope this is something I keep up for a long time. C25k has helped create the routine I need (3 times weekly) to run. But any advice on what you did after the programme? And how to make sure I keep running a part of my life long-term?
I should add I won't reach 5k in 30 mins next week at my speed so that will be my first challenge!
