Well, I don’t know if I’m running before I can walk (excuse the pun) but after finishing week one of the ‘couch to 5K‘ program, I’ve only gone and booked a 5K run in March! Yep, an official run, one where you wear a number and supposedly look like a proper runner!
Although, I have enjoyed this week, and have got along really well with the walk/run program of it all.
Gradually over the next 9 weeks I will hopefully get to the stage of running the whole 3 miles!
I’m easily put off, never really finish anything I start. Hence the booking the race. It may just be the motivation I need to actually accomplish something.
The race in question is the 5K run for sports relief on March 25th. The week before is my last week of the program, so if all goes well, I should have already run the distance.
So as well as a personal accomplishment, I will be raising money for Sports relief, a very worthy cause.
If you wish to donate, my page is here, any donation, however small will be gratefully received.
So hopefully in 3 months time I can come back here and shout, Yay! I’ve done it!
