it has been a looooooong time since I last posted! Have had various flirtations with c25k but fall of the wagon at around week 6 every time!
This time something is different, I did not use the plan, but did use some of the walk/run/walk methods I learnt on it and I am amazed to say I can run 5K non-stop! It has taken me around 12 weeks to build up to that distance!
My first 5K was at the weekend on quite a hilly route and done in 33 mins, I am 5 foot 10 and currently weigh 15 stone 7lb (so technically obese!!). I started at 16 stone 7lb though and have been using running as well as MFP to drop the weight.
I can finally say that I LOVE running, have now got the feeling of being addicted and the real bug. What I want to do now is run some 5K races, but I am worried about my time. Will my time automatically improve as I lose more weight?
Sorry for the ramble, I am just so proud of myself for a) running 5K with no break and b) running 33mins non-stop! I would never have thought this possible in November!
