I have decided to give the c25k challenge a go and completed my first run last night. To be honest, I found it a little too easy despite a pesky headwind and some small hills to contend with. I ran quite briskly for each of the 60 second intervals and found the 90 second walks to be a little too long. Don't get me wrong, I got out of puff and broke bit of a sweat, but I was far from tired after completing the session and feel physically fine today, so I thought it might be an idea to skip the first week, go straight into the 2nd and complete the programme from there.
Admittedly I am new to running, however am generally quite active and play squash & go swimming once weekly in addition to taking lengthy walks with my dog on a daily basis. This said, I don't want to do myself an injury and was therefore wondering what the general consensus is on skipping the first week of the programme in accordance with personal fitness? I suppose that ultimately my body will tell me whether it's a good idea (or not!), but it would be great to gain an outside perspective from some more experienced c25k'ers.
Just for the record; I am 29 years old with no medical conditions.
Thanks in advance
