I've been banking at least 10k every other night now for the last 7 weeks and I am definitely getting faster.
My 10k is down to 43:30 and my 5k is down at 21:07. Feeling pretty good at the moment.
It'll soon be two years (15th July) since I embarked on the C25k program and changed my life for the better!
I plan on doing the Tonbridge Half for the second time in September too, though Windsor is the same day. I spotted the other day that it's Swansea's first ever half this summer and I missed out. Gutted as I grew up in Swansea and my Dad lives there.
It's been a while since I posted in this thread. My training has been a bit hit and miss of late but I had a pretty good run yesterday. Came in at 3'40" which trumps last years effort and PB of 4'28" somewhat
agree about the stupid water containers.....I think I ended up a bit dehydrated because I couldn't fathom how to get decent drink out of them. Initial sip....then the valve would seal itself.....I ended up biting my way into them. Ideally wanted to transfer the water into my bottle but that was tricky.
I did the half too. Came in at 1:43 which is a new PB for me...beating my old one by 5mins.
I enjoyed it but found the home run from the lagoon to the finish line tough going.....felt like I had diving boots on....I just had no spring in my step. For one reason or another my training regime has taken a bit of a hit this last fortnight and I think I paid for it.
Still....the sun was shining and I got a new PB. Mustn't grumble.
