Well, Laura and I did it. Unbelievable, truly. Whew! This is so incredible. I'm always overdoing things so from the start I repeated each session, back to back. That meant those onerous 90 second slogs in Week 1 were double trouble. Oh, no! But "yes I can" prevailed. So at age 63 I just decided I should try that road to fitness, never trod before. Now I can run an hour, even if the pace is a bit -- well -- sedate. That will improve, because now, with your help, I'll continue to run as long as I am able, years to come. My dad is a healthy 99 years old, so why shouldn't I aim for that?
Thanks to each of you for helping me more than you can know. You and NHS England are beacons everywhere for taking responsibility for healthy living. It's a privilege to join you in this small way. Couch to 5k rocks. See you on the track. Wish we had Parkrun here in Canada, but there's lots of "masters" runners, friendly clubs and running events. I'm sure I'll attract some running chums, curious about the C25k logo on my shirt, soon to be ordered. YIPPPPEEEEEEE!
