Hello anyone who reads this. I'm not a blogger by nature but thought i'd put some things down for me to look at later and compare now to when I look back
I started C25K way back in september 2012 and graduated in Jan 2013. I've not quite reached the 5k distance yet but that's mainly because I run in miles lol on my next run i'm going to run 3.2 miles just so I know i've smashed it lol
I have struggled with calf pain and had to do lots of resting. I also think I suffer with pushing myself too much how easy is easy and am I being too easy? should I by now be able to run 4 miles? I feel that now I can run 3 comfortably so should I push myself to 4 or 3.5? or should I concentrate on running 3 faster?
After graduating I tried the C25K+ and that and a big hill in my new route kind of put the kybosh on my calves, so now i'm back to running the same 3 mile distance and a little scared to venture on to other things.
But despite all that uncertainty I LOVE running it's the best thing that i've ever done for myself I can leave the house stressed, plotting where to bury the body parts of the person who's upset me the most and by the time I get back I love them again and all is forgiven. The last couple of weeks have been injury free and I feel so good at the end of the run and I look forward to the next one.
