Couch to 5K

Running................I just don't get it!

Running................I just don't get it!

Whenever I was out in the car and passed joggers I would always think to myself.......I just don't get it! I could never understand the enjoyment of pounding the roads, punishing their bodies and for what purpose! My boys always ran a lot, but they had too as they were both high level athletes and so fitness and stamina were the norm. I'm a golf pro I used to say, not a athlete!! Well today I will proudly announce to the world...............I ran my first 10k and in a very respectable time of 56mins and 54 seconds!What can I say but "I LOVE RUNNING" and totally get it!

Next goal, some 5K, 8k and 10k races and later in the year a half marathon?

NB: 10k is 1000 calories burned

Very good time for 10k, really well done!

I'm like you, never understood running at all, and now I bore all and sundry about it, but , alas, they all think I'm bonkers!!!

Keep going, fellow runner! :)

Thanks guys.

@KANdoit its the Nike + GPS app on my iphone. Quite frankly I don't think I could run without a GPS app of some description as it can really keep you motivated knowing your stats etc.

@ gypsydepp, my mates think I'm nuts and nothing I say can convince them to run with me;-)
