One Hour Runner Programme Completed!

Sunday, March 30, 2008

Yesterday I finished the One Hour Runner Programme. I began my running adventure with the Couch to 5k and after that wanted more so began the One Hour Runner programme. After a few stops and starts again I completed it yesterday with a 60 minute run on the pavement covering 5.8 miles. It was dull and freezing cold and for the last 1.5 miles it started raining which felt like ice blades cutting my face but I did it! This time last year I would have struggled to run 100 meters and next week I am running a 10k race for charity! I've improved myself and now I can use it to raise money for a good cause. I'd like to thank Spark People for introducing me to this sport and a programme that enabled me to actually go from a couch potato to a runner! I'd also like to thank all the Sparkies who have helped me along and encouraged me on my journey. If someone had of told me this time last year that one year from now you will be able to run for 60 minutes straight I would have told them they'd have a better chance of winning the lottery than that happening but look at me now!

Check out the fab teams & programmes that have helped me get here
