I set off today for W9R3. I've had almost a week between runs as I must have tweaked a calf muscle and I didn't want to make it worse. It was cold, wet and windy - by far not one of my best runs but there was NO WAY I was stopping on this one.
I ran 4.8K in 30mins but decided to carry on and managed my first EVER 5K in 31mins 30seconds. I know its a bit sad but I'm soooooo proud of myself. I started the plan at the beginning of Aug (inspired by all the athletes who could run a lot further / faster than I could) and when I first looked at it no way could I envisage that in just over two months I would be able to run for 30mins (well technically 31mins 30seconds !!)
W10 looms - The Big Fun Run is on the 3rd Nov and a tiny part of me is still aiming for a 30min finish but we'll see. I'm so looking forward to getting my medal - it will almost be like getting a medal for finishing Couch25K !!!
Just want to say thank you to everyone who has commented on any of the blogs or questions that I have asked - I honestly couldn't have done it without you all. We're all awesome
