Well peeps - my 9 weeks of C25K are up and I graduated about an hour ago! Not quite at the 5k in 30 minutes level but managed the entire run at a pace of 5.5mph so ran 4.42k in total. Not bad for a complete novice and leaves me with a great goal for the rest of the year to work my way up to the elusive 5k!
My plan now is to continue with the week 9 style runs and continue to build my stamina at the 5.5mph level and try a few minutes at a time running at 6mph (eek!!)
So chuffed I managed it. Had a slight mishap though - 20 minutes in and all of a sudden my laptop on which I was playing my music decided to shutdown to install some windows updates! Luckily my hubbie was in and heard my gasping shouts. He got it going again so I was only without music for about 4 minutes - you've got to laugh but thank goodness he was there - its the first time he has been whilst I've been running. The thought of stopping and then trying to start again would have been horrible!
Can't wait to get my green badge. I just need to look up who arranges it. Good Luck to the rest of the week niners! YOU CAN DO IT!
