And I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more

Well, maybe not 1000 miles or even 500 but I just became the 55th member of the C25K 5x50 team! YAAAY!

Then it sunk in. What have I done? AAAAARGH!

250km - isn't that 150 miles? Oh No!

Actually, I'm looking forward to it. As we say up here ... Nae Bother.

Now, I'd better get out of bed & actually do something about getting started ... My youngest son is at uni in Stirling and I'm off to bring him home for a family Easter dinner. I presume he won't have put his clock forward and won't be ready to go, so I'll put on my gear, drive to Stirling and make my first day's exercise a run from his wee flat up the hill to Stirling Castle. That's a helluva hill but it should be achievable.

RIGHT - better get out of bed and do it. Up and at 'em. Here we go. What will I do today to make myself proud.

What's that dear? Another cup of tea in bed? Yes, I'd like that very much.

God help us all.

  • Hey welcome to the team Malcy!! I saw your name just now and wondered who would come forward as #55 :) Fantastic! Yep I'm off for a run very soon too after my cuppa brought to me in bed by my OH! What wonderful supporting partners we have ;)

    Enjoy you run; sounds lovely. Happy Easter!

  • I have that on my playlist...it makes me laugh as I stumble along in my 1st 10 minutes. I wish.

  • Day 1 5x50 I'm also off for run shortly here in Sunny Aberdeenshire, as this is my first Post-Grad run I am ditching Laura for Zombie Run!

  • Good luck to you all on the 5x50. Nice to see some fellow Scots here. Wish I could join you, but I'm at the stage of being delighted to have managed W4R1 yesterday, in sunny Moray. One day.............!

  • Yay! More of us! I'm going to drag my other half away from the Sunday papers and out for a nice gentle 5k walk. He had an op a few weeks back so won't be joining me for any runs but whenever I can I'll walk with him in an attempt to get him fit again. Might have to bribe him with the promise of a pint at the end ;)

  • Welcome to the team Malcy; hope you made it out of bed and onto the road! I'd not thought of how far we have signed up for - that's a bit frightening, but I can't wait for the stats to add up on Imap! :-)

  • Hurrah, more members for the challenge! :)
