Broken the 5 minute mark!


Recommended Posts

I have tried to start running so many times over the years but have always given up - lung collapse, painful knees, lack of motivation... many of the usual stories. I have been blessed with a physique that means I look fit even when I don't feel it, and have always been active (yoga, hiking, occasional swimming) but now I'm in my 40s and got married this year, it felt like a 'now or never' moment to start building my aerobic fitness. I have a number of friends of relatives who run everything from marathon to 5km and I'd always thought 'running's not for me'. I moved to Denmark two years ago, and there are always people running in the city - which is as flat as a pancake (which helps!) so I finally got myself measured for a decent pair of running shoes (thus solving the knee issues!) and joined them... felt so proud of myself earlier this week when I broke the 5 minute barrier for the first time in my life and I'm sharing here so I keep the motivation to keep it going.
