So I've been doing C25K since August and have never felt the need to blog before now, The main reason for this, I think is that it’s all gone fairly smoothly. Not easy but not too difficult with no injuries (touch wood) and no more aches and pains than you would expect of a 56-year old woman who exercises sporadically and hasn’t actually run since junior school (and not very well then!). All in all pretty much according to plan – until now, that is! A week ago last Saturday I graduated – hurrah!! So, my first post-graduation goal was going to be our local park run. So – graduation week 1 I did Stepping Stones twice – again, not easy but I did it – although nowhere near 5K (about 3.75 to be precise). So I thought on Sunday I’d do the Stamina podcast and then a couple of runs this week and I’d be ready for the park run next Saturday . Well Stamina was a disaster. Hard work all the way through and gave up after about 30 minutes. I was gutted!!! Ruined my day! Anyone else have similar experiences? Where do I go now? Do I try Stamina again or do my own thing, run at my own pace for as long as it takes until I get to the elusive 5K. Should I try for the park run on Saturday but take it slowly? Or wait ‘til I’m a bit more confident I can actually do it? Sorry for all the questions but I do have 3 months’ worth to catch up on :o).
