Gym closed for W2r3 so husband volunteered to go in front of my first run outside he could clean up dog mess ahead of my run!
Celebrating my 61st birthday with w3r3 followed by 10k cycling and 1k swim –my own personal triathlon! Ate my healthy banana snack sliced into ice cream, drizzled with Bailey’s and sprinkled with chocolate!
Taking grandchildren in w5r2 and finding that they set off so fast they couldn’t make the 8 minute runs but I finished at my pace and that really gave me the confidence to do the 20 minutes in w5r3
Finishing the 20 minute run
Brisk walking- I quite missed the interval walks when they finished.
Spreading the word to my sister in US so she could start c25k and finding how much she is enjoying the programme.
Laura’s conviction that I could do everything she asked. She doesn’t even know me but she has such confidence in me- amazing!
Daughter borrowing my running tops- “because they look so good on you, Mum!” ( She doesn’t use them for running, though and she’s not getting her hands on my c25k Tees!)
Taking husband out for his inaugural run. He wouldn’t wear earbuds to listen to Laura so I stood in the middle of the park shouting out the intervals like a circus ringmaster while he ran round the park!
Finishing a run. – any run, every run!
Finding the difference it has made to my swimming. I can now go faster for further- great!
Getting to 5k on my graduation run. The first time I’d made the distance and then only by running through the warm up and cool-down minutes! I’m not fast but I am tenacious!
