I’m taking part in the new Run Bramley Baths group, which is taking a group of us from the Couch to 5k. Here’s my report from our second week...
This week has been tougher than week one – but I do believe I’m already starting to find my running shoes!
If I go back two weeks, the thought of running anywhere would have given me a sense of dread.
Apart from my running with the new Run Bramley Baths group, last night I found myself breaking into a jog while out with the dog, and the day before I even jogged for a couple of minutes into work!
Week two of Run Bramley Baths has seen us starting with a five-minute brisk warm-up walk before doing 90 seconds running, followed by two minutes walking for a total of 20 minutes.
I must admit, there are times when the 90 seconds has seemed a long time! The additional 30 seconds from last week is already starting to build up my stamina. My legs felt a bit like lead today for our second session on the week but I soon got going.
And as I said last week, this group is friendly and encouraging. No-one gets left behind, which is just as well in my case!
There are still some places available on Friday’s session. It starts from the Baths reception at 9.30am (other days are Mondays and Wednesdays). It’s a pay as you feel event and free is fine.
