On my run today I was thinking of this forum (for lack of a better term) and how nice it is to communicate with people that are, are due to, or have been what you've gone through on the C25k course.
I did however notice how much this contrasted with the general reality of running. Many would agree it is a selfish activity unless running with others. I imagine that due to having to listen and run in time to Laura's commands, it would make this difficult anyway before graduating and running the set 5k?
On my run today (w4r1) I ran past a good 5 - 7 people doing the same activity going in the opposite direction and they didn't even glance at me. Fair enough we might be 'in the zone' when running, but I am maybe expecting a bit much to have a smile from others in the same situation.
It's just a bit of a shame, in my opinion, that the lovely (I'm perhaps using that word too often) shared experience on this website is such a contrast to the physical activity of running in a park.
Anyone agree/ disagree?
