6 short weeks ago I was that "Reluctant Husband" who had been encouraged by my wife to do this couch25k thing! I had never seen the point in running just for the sake of things: indoor footie or out on a bike now that was worthwhile. Then before you know it I was enjoying running, and dare I say it have been bitten by the bug, so when I was doing my first week 7 run and was feeling good I decided to go that little bit further to do 5.01 k and managed it in 28 mins and 23 sec!!!
I'm not sure this a good thing, will I be able to get out of bed tomorrow? I feel fine at the moment and can actually hold a conversation after 5 mins!
It just shows you that this programme does work. I am 50 and probably a bit over weight but have been impressed how the structure keeps pushing you on just that little bit further, until today that is!
I'll see how I feel during my next run but would like to keep doing this distance until the end of the 9 weeks then work towards a 10k or is that just a bit ambitious?
I hope I don't sound like I'm boasting but I'm really chuffed with myself. Go on just get out there and do it!!!!!
