I started the C25K podcasts on Monday in the hope of getting fit enough to run at least part of the Race for Life's 10k on 24th June - I know it seems ambitious but I originally signed up for it back towards the end of Feb, thinking I had enough time to train - I then had an collision with a cyclist a couple of weeks later, hurting my foot in the process.
My foot is finally on the mend and my initial thought was 'I'm never going to run 10k, so I'll give up', but then I decided to kick my train of thought into a postive one and thought that at least if I can run 5k by 24th June, I can either walk the rest or hope adrenaline kicks in!!!!
I completed Monday's first run and didn't feel too bad... until I woke up the next morning and felt like my thigh muscles had been torn out!
I went for the 2nd run last night, just as the heavens were opening (I had to nip home half way through to fetch my jacket before nuemonia kicked in!)
I finished the 2nd run podcast but found it quite hard... my chest hurt when I breathed and my legs felt heavy too... I'm just hoping that the more I exercise, the more my body will get used to it.
I read about everyone who is on week 6, 7, 8 and 9 and think 'if they can do it, so can I!'
