Final run for this month done. A fairly comfortable 10k in just under 68 minutes. What a month it has been... Started with a rotten cold and didn't run at all during the first week. By the time I sat down to type this, despite that set back, I'd managed 14 runs covering a total of 92k. In those 14 runs, I managed four 10k runs and a further five 5k runs. My 10k time fell from just under 74 minutes to 67 minutes, and my 5k time fell from 32:36 to 30:41. My year to date totals are now 104 runs covering 515k. Oh, and on top of all that, just before Christmas, having been pretty inactive for much of last year due to my oft-mentioned tendonitis, I topped the scales at 15st. Today, I am under 13st for the first time in about 15 years. I've been on quite a journey since I decided back in March to give this running thing another try. I turn 49 on Saturday. I'm fitter than I have been since my mid-30s. My modest aim is to get my 5k and 10k times below 30 and 60 min
Somewhere along the line, I decided that becoming a runner might be a good idea and I embarked on the Couch to 5K plan. Within 9 months, I'd run my first Half Marathon. This is where I share my thoughts and feelings about my running experiences.
