I'm about to start W6 R1 today - all going well so far. When I first started the C25K I signed up for the 5k Race for Life in July. I feel confident as will have completed the programme way before the race.
This week at work, we got an email about the JPMorgan Chase challenge which is 5k too. I would dearly love to do this as prior to my weight loss and beginning running, it was always a joke I made every year telling people I'd be up for it as I was so overweight, unfit and had never run that it was obviously a ridiculous idea. Now it's actually a possibility I thought I really would sign up. When I checked the date, it's 3 days before the Race for Life.
My first reaction was I'd have to miss it but having thought about it, I realised that the programme is supposed to have you running for 30 mins / 5 k and you only need to have a days rest between runs so this would give me 3 days rest. I'm guessing by then I should be running 5 K on most runs won't I?
Do you think I should do it? Everyone at work is into running and it would be so nice to feel part of it this year.
Many thanks for any advice.
