First off, let me thank all of you who wished me luck and gave such encouragement to start this C25K training program.
I set off at 6.30am with my new trainers looking alarmingly bright and chose a route along the river Thames which is right next to where I live. The sun shone and birds tweeted and I had the most enjoyable run! Amazingly I didn't find it too hard and I kept to the advice you all had given me to "take it slow" - which I did. My app beeped and spoke and told me what to do and eventually I ended up back home with a face as red as a tomato and sweating like some sort of farm animal! BUT WHAT A FEELING OF ACHIEVEMENT!
I'm slightly worried about how stiff I will be on my next run, so any tips on how to overcome muscle ache will be greatly appreciated.
Roll on Run 2.....
