I recently returned from a gorgeous holiday in Cyprus. I took my trainers with me determined to keep my three runs per week schedule alive and well. I managed to complete WEEK 3 and start WEEK 4 and boy was it grrrrrreat! Running in the early evening when it was cooler, right beside the Mediterranean with a light breeze in glorious sunshine was AMAZING. I was freaked out by the 5 minute run portion on WEEK 4 but managed it absolutely fine.
On my return home yesterday, I completed the LAST of my WEEK 4 runs and for the very very first time, I had no pain or stiffness in my legs. I wasn't even out of breath much and still had a bit left in the tank at the very end of it all. This C25K thing is incredible, not only for feeling fitter and losing weight - but for the enormous feeling of WELL BEING!!
Thank you for reading. Week 5 next week.........YIKES!!!
