I’m new on here, and as I’m on my 9th (and therefore final) week of C25K I’m wondering what comes next.
I’m 63 now, and was very overweight before starting running, but I’m pretty much losing my previously fat belly now, and am feeling pretty good on it.
I didn’t really have any fears about doing the C25K course but I do have a few worries about moving on to the 10K runs, and the main one is the possibility of having a heart attack if I somehow overstretch myself somewhere where there’s no-one around to run for help or to administer CPR.
My doctor was perfectly happy for me to do the 5K course, and the last time I had it checked just a couple of weeks ago she told me that my blood pressure was “perfect” (her actual word) so I reckon that might stand me well for carrying on. Could anyone advise me on this please, or does anyone have any thoughts on any of this?
