This is a great place to share your running achievements and aspirations. I love it because everyone here has started from the couch, so all achievements, however small they seem, are celebrated as achievements. I keep reading about people who, having completed the Couch to 5K programme are itching to move on to 10K and have ambitions to run longer and longer distances. And I'm very pleased for them but, I have to say, I do not share their ambition. I have no desire to work up to running a marathon, a half-marathon, or even a 10K. (I did a 10K once, on not enough training and couldn't walk afterwards). What I do want to do, though, is run for 30 mins 3 times a week and to improve my speed and stamina so that I can do a sub-30 min 5K. I don't think I'm ever going to love running - my tight calves see to that, I think - but I'm not finding it too painful anymore. Two more runs to go on this programme. I'm hoping that there will soon be more podcasts that help me improve my speed and, therefore, my distance. I can honestly say that I would not be able to run for 30 minutes straight had it not been for these podcasts. And all the encouragement that I've received since I started blogging here has helped too.
I've prepaid the booking fee for next year's Race for Life and I want to be qualified to start at the front of it! Now there's something to work towards!
