A little while ago, I wrote about my aim to get running & do the Race for Life, using Couch to 5K. I am half way through the training programme. It is getting tough. My next run requires me to run for 20 minutes, without stopping. I am not looking forward to it! Despite this, the programme is really good. It was only a few months ago that I couldn’t run at all, now I can run for at least 8 minutes. I’m not built for speed, so Ussain Bolt doesn’t have to worry about me catching him anytime soon, but I just try to remind myself to go slow & steady.

My other aim is to raise money for Cancer Research. So far I’ve raised £83, which isn’t bad, but I would like to raise a bit more. So if you can help, that would be great!

I am not a natural athlete. If sitting on the sofa, drinking chai was an Olypmic sport, I’d be World number 1 & the favourite to win gold in this summer’s games. When it comes to the 5k, my aim is to get around the course. I don’t mind how long it takes, as long as I can get round. I am looking forward to completing the couch to 5k training & feeling like I can just go out and run. Once I’ve done the 5k, I’ll need another challenge so if anyone has any ideas, that would be great!
