    W9D1 complete. Third park run this morning with a takeaway hangover which is a real thing and I need to be more aware of it next time someone says they want to go to McDonalds!

    Congrats on completing Wk5 @adampeart as when you look at it you think "You want me to run for HOW LONG??". In a few weeks you'll be wondering why you saw it as such a big thing.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    I have done a couple 5km on the treadmill now and another one tomorrow.... we got snow last night so I’m pretty sure I will be on it now for the next 6 months ☹️

    I got so cocky after doing week 5 I did day 1&2 of week 6 at once. Paying for it now 😂 averaged 5mph for 72mins. Quite pleased with that.

    W9D3 finished. C25K FINISHED!!!

    Today I felt as if I had found some running form, that it wasn't like forcing a car down the road after fitting square wheels which was how I started. I figured my time had to be good. Shows what I know as it was the same as the last four 5ks. Oh well, it wasn't about speed, it was about committing until the programme was completed.

    Thanks @durhammfp @Pearl4686 @adampeart

    Adam and I had the same idea which was back to back 5ks and I actually managed two 10ks in the process as they were ideal days for running. I want to manage a 15k before the end of the year so I entered an event on 9th November, it is too soon but it is the only remaining event local to me before the year end so it may just be a 10k and anything I have left before walking the rest. In the meantime I intend to keep doing the 5k park runs so I don't throw away the progress so far

    Ultimately my daughter is getting me to do a marathon but given the time taken to reach 5k I'm not sure which decade she is looking at!
