After doing nothing for two months, due to a broken foot. I was keen to get back on the C25K programme, before my accident I had made it to W9R1 and was gutted not to have been able to graduate. So four weeks ago I started back on a fast track version of C25K, which went something like this:
W1R1, W3R1,W4R1, W5R1, W5R2, W5R3, W6R1, W6R2, W6R3, W7R1, W7R2, W8R1, W8R2, W9R1.
I had initially planned just to do the whole programme again but found that even after a couple of months off I had retained some of my former fitness so just went with the shorter programme. Posted here in case anyone else finds themselves in a similar position of wondering how to get back into it.
Well today was W9R1, which is where I left off so I was back, however at the end of the 30 minutes I saw I had already run for 4.5kms and decided to see if I could get to 5km. I did it in just under 33 minutes!
Am so proud of myself, couldn't have done it with Laura or the feeling of team endeavour gained from reading other people's blogs on this site.
So 2 more runs to go and then I can graduate. What has been particularly special about this time is that my daughter started running with me and she too made the full 5 kms today. As she said at the end 'We are runners!'
