    thats great work!! and in today's fitness culture, there seems to be more of an emphasis on distance, rather than speed.

    Quote " Once you get past that point where you feel sick like you're going to throw up and like you can't run another step, if suddenly gets easier. It's like you still feel the stress on your body, but you're above and beyond it. So. I think getting over that hump is essential to improving time." end quote
    I am two thirds of the way through week 5 of C25K and have found this to be exactly true ... I get to a certain point when I suddenly realise that it has become mentally easier to carry on the run even though physically it is still fairly demanding. Running is turning out to be an undiscovered pleasure for me and I just wish I had decided to start a lot sooner ... but still - better late than never eh!!!
    Well done on your accomplishment, I am looking forward to a similar accomplishment myself one day :flowerforyou:

    I just started running and can't imagine running for more than a few minutes at a time then I have to walk or slow jog, but your story is inspirational to me. I've been volunteering at running events handing out water and so on. Hope to do a 5K on New Year's Day, yes, that is right, and I'll start training at a clinic in October at the Running Room. You're doing so well and it's great to hear from all the people about how much they enjoy running, especially Kaz, whom I know from MFP, I know she's been doing a rigorous program. Have you seen a video featuring The Barefoot Professor? It's pretty much out there, he's running barefoot on pavement in snow in part of the video. Brrr

    Well Done.

    Find your local park run for a weekly, timed, fun event.

    That's an amazing time. Well done! I started C25K in May and my best 5K is 35 minutes.

    You are AWESOME!! Slathered in AWESOME SAUCE!! Rock on! I am inspired. It is also a goal for me to run it in under 30, I've lost 42 pounds, and have been working out and getting in shape these last 18 months, and haven't run a timed 5K in that time, my best time before was 35 minutes I think... Thanks!! Gonna go look up a 5K to sign up for! Keep up the great work!
