I don't post too often around here but I do lurk around for a few minutes most days reading some of the inspiring stories from you guys. But today I thought I just had to post one of my own, I just had to tell somebody what a great run I had last night!
I started C25K back in August with the main goal of returning to a state of reasonable fitness following a far too sedentary life at university! I was done by October this year and after a few weeks of the C25K+ runs I started Bridge210k (Sam Murphy's podcasts - she's no Laura but some of the music is better!). Last night was my Week 4 Run 3 of B210k and it was a very chilly night! I thought I was running through the set of The Exorcist at times the way the fog and mist was hanging around the lamp posts (although the excess outdoor christmas lights make everything seem happier). The podcast was three 18 minute intervals and because I run a set route regularly when Sam told me I was done I knew how close I was to my 10k marker - so as I was feeling good at the time I pushed on and I am so glad I did the extra 5 minutes!
I was very happy to have recorded 10.1km in 58 minutes! Getting it under an hour was my goal to see out 2012 so I'm more than pleased to have done it with a few weeks to go until the New Year. I hope everyone else is making progress and you all complete the personal goals you set out for yourselves in 2012 - or perhaps you already have hit them! I'd love to hear about it.
