Yesterday morning I ran my last run of the C25K......was SO excited about graduating (but worried as whenever I really look forward to a run its not my best and viceversa!) but it was glorious and my little legs kept running in 'Forest gump' style (but not as fast!) for 45 minutes, zipppeeedeeedoodah!
I have thrived on this challenged as have never thought I could run, but according to the 'running goddess named Laura' I am now a runner and very proud! I have learnt lots during this process - you are training 3 things - your mind (that naughty little lazy demon telling you to stop!), your lungs and your legs.
The running bug is definately contagious - i love it! I am so excited to set myself challenges - I have signed up for the 5K Race for Life in a couple weeks, then 10K and hopefully a half marathon next spring...bring it on!
I have taken great inspiration from hearing all your stories - you are all amazing. Thank you for helping me get this far. For you new recruits out there - you CAN do it and it will feel amazing - keep strong!
Am going to treat myself to a garmin 110 - is that naughty!?!?!?!?!?!?
