I was given suggestions/instructions from he who must be obeyed about how to handle the new running stuff, he is adapting the C25K to better suit my abilities and time.
Well! I sort of did what he said lol :). I went back to the site of the Parkrun where I got ill and I did the 5k (3.17 miles) walk, but this time I ran as well, in fact I ran for 1.2 miles (1.93 km) of the course, but slowed down a lot in the gaps, so the time wasn’t great but was a PB of 55 minutes 36 seconds. I know not a world record or anything but I RAN for over a third of the way and it felt GOOD.
I especially liked the bits where I ran really fast, I felt free, alive, natural, connected to the earth somehow, primal I suppose is the word I’m looking for. For once using my body to do what evolution designed it to do (child bearing aside).
