Week 9 run 1

Well I have nearly graduated 2 runs to go. Tonight I did my brisk 5 min walk then ran for 5.14km in 31mins 50 secs then a 7 min brisk walk home. Boy am I chuffed with myself, what an accomplishment both on a physical and mental level. I have stayed off the fags 3 weeks tomorrow, the down side I have put on a stone in weight however I feel a few pound of that is muscle.......am I kidding myself on. Not to be put off I joined slimming world yesterday, hence the reason I know that I put on a stone, and I am confident that i will shed it within 6 weeks at the latest, watch this space..............the sweat is running down my face as i write so i feel its time to have a shower, here's to graduating, my 5km run for cancer research, my next challenge of 10k training and my 10k race in september, boy life begins at 50!! :)

  • WOW! you really are inspirational!, it's great to read of achievements such as yours! And, don't put yourself down - of course a few pound of that weight is muscle! I am really looking forward to reading your post when you have graduated! Good luck with your 5km run and your 10k race in September.

  • Thanks for your kind words these blogs are fab, we are all in the same boat :)
