The below is from 4 years ago on FB
"It is now 217 days since i last smoked , just over 7 months If i had known what some of the after effects would be maybe I wouldn't have.
The bottom line is i did and have become a non smoker, now I never thought i would say that lol
I have also now compeleted Week1 on a C25K program (Couch to 5k running program over 9 weeks ish ) the ain is run for 30 mins or 5k distance at the end of the 9 weeks , that seeems a long way off at week 1 but if you dont try you never know"
A very useful reminder on FB page just how far I have come in 4 years . No they haven't always been easy I have had injuries have lost motivation and struggled with a few demons but I am still here running it is the one constant that keeps me further away from that 40 a day couch potato person.
C25K is so much more than just about running..long may it continue 😀😀
