Hello to all my personal trainers (i.e. all of you!),
thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, questions and successes on this page. Although this is my first post here but I've been loitering here as a silent reader for the last two months. Your posts motivated me when I had a bad run (and realised that some of you also struggled with exactly the same runs), you made me laugh (i.e. the a question about how to wear runner shorts without getting injured ) and kept me motivated when I was too much a sloth to get out of the door. This is the first forum ever I join but it's definitely worth it!
So: THANK YOU ALL! I don't know if I had kept to the plan without this page.
Just a few words about my journey so far:
I (never been sportive, 25 years old, overweight) started W1R1 on the 3rd of April. At that time I didn't know about the NHS C25K but had found the plan somewhere in the internet. So off I went with my mobile (as stopwatch) and from W2 on with an additional post it in my hand (I found it hard to remeber when I had to do what for how long...I felt quite stupid "running" in the park, starring at a yellow post it...).
Some day in W3, I googled C25K and found this wonderful page and the podcasts that released me of the post it). Off I went with wonderful Laura and her special choice of music. Everything went perfect, I didn't have to repeat a single run and felt almost bored with W1-4, so I graduated on the 1st of June covering around 4.6 km in 30 minutes. Since then, I've been running to my own music as well as to the Week 9 podcast. I also tried Stepping Stones but somehow I'm too stupid to do this podcast... I'll give it another try in a few weeks time.
So again: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Happy running to everyone!
