You set Andy a challenge – 10 weeks to train to run a faster 5km. In the final instalment before lacing up for his 5k attempt, check out how he’s been getting on. With nerves building as the big day approaches, every session counts, but it’s not all plain sailing. As runners, we’re only ever a heartbeat or misstep away from INJURY – dealing with what gets thrown at us, both emotionally and physically can be tricky!
Andy is the parkrun World Record Holder (13:48, since you ask). Since retirement, he fell out of love with running – but a few years later – he is now finding his feet again. For your viewing pleasure, Andy is undertaking a 10-week challenge to see just how fit he can get, and take on the goal chosen by you – to run a sub 15 minute 5km.
