I never thought I would be able to get this far

I have never been able to run very far, as a teenager I was always tried to get out of cross country. I was given an IPOD shuffle for my 40th birthday and I had heard of the c25K. A friend of mine is such an inspiration I thought I would give it a go. I love it, the first week was hard, but the first time I ran for 5 mins I couldn't stop smiling. I am on ,my last run on week 7 and I still can't believe I can run for 25mins. To anyone who has just started the personal achievement you get from the programme is amazing and you want to do more......

Well done, it is great to feel that sense of achievement. Graduation next.


It's pretty amazing how well the program works isn't it? I find this community a great source of help and support too. Well done for getting this far. Couple more weeks to go! :)
