I started the c25k when we booked a holiday back in February that included a 9km trek. At the time I was so unfit that I could barely walk up a hill, let alone run for any distance.
Since then I have graduated from both the c25k and the b210k program and am so thankful for the support that I have received from reading all the posts on these forums, and the progress I have made.
We did our trek this week, it was 3 hours clambering along rice terraces, up and down shear slopes, very muddy and slippery, and the hardest thing I have ever done. But thanks to the training my legs held out and I finished intact.
I feel better in myself too. More confident to try new things and I definitely have loads more energy.
I still need to lose weight, and work on my overall balance and flexibility, but I’m looking forward to meeting these challenges while maintaining the running.
So thank you to all of you who keep everyone motivated!
