GTFCMarathon in reply to Speedy60

I started C25k in Nov 19 and have run week in week out 3x a week mostly (occasionally 4) apart from injury. I love it and as I've gone on I've felt much more suited for long distance. Your HM will come if that is what you'd like. We are all different though so never compare. Your achievements are as good as mine and everybody else's. Every time you go out, you win ๐Ÿ˜Š

Speedy60
