A bit about me:
I started running in the summer of '04 to lose weight - I'd become a bit of a bloater to be honest. Too much pizza, curry and chinese as well as an addiction to toast & doughnuts had left my body a wreck - a size 24 & grossly overweight for my height. I decided enough was enough, and with some help from my husband Andy, some new found willpower and a lot of exercise, I've managed to shift almost eight stone - about half my weight.
I'm now competing for Jarrow & Hebburn AC, doing canny in our local races, and I took part in the local veterans track league last year (since I turned 35 and officially became old in athletic terms lol )
Training info/logs & races: here
|800 m||2:52||1 mile ||6:26|
|1500 m||5:49||5 miles||36:02|
|3000 m||12:23||10 miles ||1:17:43|
|5000 m||21:07||13.1 miles||1:42:06|
Not the best in the world by any stretch, but not bad either. I'm hoping for a sub 21 minute 5k next year. I've already smashed my 10k, 1 mile pb & 800m pb's, and knocked over 2 mins off my half marathon time at this years GNR.
