Can anyone explain how this programme works cos I don't understand it!
Eighteen months ago I decided I wanted to start jogging, and someone said to try intervals. So I started by running 30 seconds and walking 30 seconds for 10 reps, but no matter how many times I tried I just couldn't improve on that.
Fast forward a year to April 2018, and someone else then said to give C25K a go. Ha I thought, I can't run for 60 seconds non-stop .... but I did. And 9 weeks later was able to run for 30 minutes.
In July I ran my first 5k, in August I conquered my local hills (they're not big, but before then they'd been insurmountable to me).
Now I'm unofficially following Ju-ju's 10km plan (I say unofficially, as I didn't start till 3 weeks after everyone else - too busy procrastinating!) And somehow, yesterday I ran for 8km. That's 5 miles! I mean, come on, normal people don't run for 5 miles, it's just madness!
So I've come to the conclusion that this programme, and this forum, magically casts a spell over everyone who joins and turns them into some sort of mad super-human who just wants to run. And if that's not the truth can someone please tell me how in God's name it works? Cos it seems like a miracle!
