Well last time I tried C25K after repeating week 3 several times and eventually giving up as I was still struggling with the 3 minutes, I started again in January.
Last week was W4 and as I blogged at the end of W3 it was going so much better. I didn't have a problem with any of the runs in W4 and am starting to feel like a proper runner, it's easier all round this time.
Today I did W5R1 with only a little trepidation. The first two runs went well, going into the final 5 mins I was flagging a little. I ran into the small park near my home to do a lap for the final 5 mins and met a runner coming the opposite way - a young lad wearing trendy gear, not sports clothing running fast laps. As we approached I met his eyes and he offered me his fist (like a high five, I've seen the young 'uns at work do it). With a smile I responded and we ran on. He lapped me twice each time grinning at me.
I came home and told the 16year old son about this fist-nudging business. With a grin he said 'respect'. Eh? It means 'respect' he tells me...
I can't stop smiling now and I was pretty high before
