Shame faced graduate!

I originally graduated in september time but unfortunately due to a wedding, illness and (if i'm honest) sheer laziness i have fallen off the C25K wagon.

However, i have set myself 2 goals this year, the first is a 10k for Cancer Research in july and the second is to hopefully have a baby. The first goal i feel is doable but the second i have been having difficulty with.

With all that in mind i decided 'right, time to get serious and get fit' and this programme falls so easily into that, so i have re-started my C25k journey. On monday i thought i'll have a go at week 1 it was ok so did it yesterday too. I know i am supposed to do it 3 times but i may cheat a little and test myself with week 2 on saturday! I decided as well that i will go a little faster and up hill!

In a few months i hope to graduate again.

Above all i'm glad to be back!

  • Well done for starting again I'm sure you will be running 5k in no time. And good luck with your baby aim too.

  • Thank you rolphie2, i just need to get back into the routine!

  • Welcome back Shellie! No need to be shame-faced, life gets in the way and I am sure most of us our guilty of not staying fully committed at one time or another. Best wishes in the baby department! :-) Wishing you a great next run! Gayle

  • Thanks Gayle, it may never happen but i've got to give it a try! And you're right life does get in the way sometimes, to spur me on i've decided to get a pink graduate t-shirt for the Race for Life 10k in july!

    Thanks again xx

  • Welcome back Shellie! You may have fallen off but you are back on it now and sound determined so good on ya! :) You have something to aim for too so that should keep you motivated and focused.

    I think just get back into it the best way that is for you; you have done it before so know the importance of not over-doing it and listening to your body so if you feel able then just crack on. Best of luck with the running and the baby making!! ;) :D
