Hi folks just thought I’d give an update as I haven’t blogged since graduating a little while back.
My 12 year old son has done really well so far on C25K and is now on week 8. It won’t be long before he shows me a clean pair of heels! He will be 13 in August and already has the same size 9 feet as me!
My 10 year old daughter was on week 2 but has slightly sprained her ankle playing netball so we are giving it a rest for a while.
The better half is also getting back up to speed (previous runner) so it may be a family park run in a few months’ time!
I’ve carried on running every other day since graduation with the exception of one run (had a few days off to rest a niggling muscle pain), and have built up the distance rather than the speed. Last night I ran 9K (was supposed to be around 8 but got carried away) in 68mins 35secs – not particularly fast but I’m happy with it. A couple more runs at this distance and hopefully will be up to 10K in the next week or two. Hope to do a park run soon and work on improving my 5K time which is still around 35mins.
Good luck everyone and happy running!
