I just thought that I really need to share my experience with all of you other C25K runners. Despite being on Week 1, I decided to move on, because I already have quite a good fitness base from my cycling, tennis and cricked. Anyway... I have run twice today.... Firstly I did a kind of custom version of a 30 minute work out, with a start of 1 min run 1 min walk twice, and then moving up to 8 minutes of running to finish off my 30 minutes on the running machine. I felt so hungry for more though, that this evening I decided to go again. So, onto the running machine I went, and began with 3 minute warm up walk, 3 minute run, 1 minute walk, 2 minute run, 1 minute walk, 2 minute run, 1 minute walk and then a 20 MINUTE RUN!!!!!
I can't believe it... Got carried away, but absolutely loved it. Maybe for the next 2 to 3 weeks I can build on from that, and onto longer runs of 40 minutes on the running machine, and then perhaps 30 minutes outside.
All I can say is that I am feeling great and loving my running experience. Bring on the running at sports day this year!! ( My friends will be shocked, as I am more known for academic achievement and ball sports than running distances!!)
Oh! Btw, thanks for all your support, and comments on my last blog. You have all inspired me and helped me through!
