Can't believe I have reached this point...seems to have arrived so quickly and I don't know if I actually AM fitter, but I now am running for 30 mins (ok not covering 5k during the run yet, but I hope I am not the only one fally short of the 5k...but I am if I include the warm up).
Have booked myself in for a 5k charity run in a couple of weeks, toying with a 10k in the future, maybe more.
The last run was hard, nearly came back in the first 5 minutes, then found I was feeling tired after 10 minutes so slowed down a bit and finished feeling tired but good and with a personal best in terms of speed and distance covered. I still find myself wondering why on earth I am doing this to myself DURING a run, but the post-run sense of satisfaction is well worth the effort. Hopefully graduating tomorrow..oh my goodness. The plan really DOES work.
