I'm currently coming to the end of week 4 and have noticed some changes in myself.
I'm starting to think I may be able to class myself as a runner when I've realised the following:
I really look forward to my run days.
I get frustrated on my rest days.
I check out other runners technique, breathing and clothing.
I'm happier in the runners section of Sports Direct than I am in the sale section of Primark.
I am passionate about c25k and will try to convince everyone I know to give it a try.
I panic about when I will fit in a run if on holiday or at some social occasion.
I like the feeling of post exercise muscle aches.
I'm really looking forward to scary week 5.
I'm already mentally planning my post c25k graduate playlist.
Bad weather is not necessarily a bad thing or off putting on a run.
I am very excited about seeing the word Graduate after my name.
Within 4 weeks I have undergone this transformation. It's scary but it's great. I really like the new me. Ive definitly found its helping me with other aspects of my life. I suffer depression and the biggest thing has been the mental boost. Plus it helps with overall confidence and self esteem. The increasing lung capacity, fitness and stamina are great and I dont doubt it will help with weight loss too.
And although I don't post like I used to, I love the positivity and encouragement I read on this forum too.
I've definitly got the bug. Thankyou all.
