my name is Maria and I am from Germany. I did today my second run on the first week and I am very happy with the programm. Last year I tried it by myself to start running but I failed. My muscles ached and I got terrible stitch in the side. Every breath hurted.
Now with the NHS Couch25K programm my muscles don´t hurt and I don´t got stitch, too.
I orientate myself on the beat of the music and it works fantastic.
But I think, that I should do the first week twice. The winter was long and I catched a cold three times. Between November and March I was constantly in poor health. I think I need more time to swing into full gear.
First I finish my third run and than I see if I start the second week or if I repeat the first week.
I wish you a nice weekend!
