As the title of my blog suggests I would like to Run the Great North Run (20k) in 2012. I am 46,loads overweight and have not run since I was 16 and that was only pretend running.So I have a plan,a goal,the motivation and some excellent support. Lets get this thing done!!!
IN THE SNOW...This was fantastic, not only did I run for 25 minutes non stop on the C25k plan, not only did I run in the snow (which was really refreshing actually), not only did I run for a whole 2 MILES but I also beat my personal best (for a mile) by 30 seconds. I didn't even know I had a personal best (my Blackberry tracker told me).
The whole aim of C25k is to get people running for 30 minutes in total, I am nearly there now and apparently (according to the podcast) I can now call myself a runner.
WARNING SCARY PICTURE..
Me after my 2 MILE RUN....
I know I keep mentioning it but a few months ago I wouldn't have even walked for 2 miles let alone run,what a fantastic feeling it was....C25k what a fantastic plan.
Thank you most sincerely to everyone who is giving me support, I would not have done it without you.
