Happy to report that I started the C25K program again yesterday after an extended period of 11 months off due to injury, workload and putting it off. So with orthotics fitted and a new convert from work with me we started.
I'm pleased to say that this time I've got the confidence of knowing that the program really works and can't wait until I'm hooked on running again.
Things I'm doing differently this time are: doing it with a friend (so we can keep each other on plan), using a foam roller (to massage those muscles), wearing my orthotics (to ensure my gait doesn't put my back out again), following the S&F program (to build core strength and posture) and using a GPS devise (to track my progress). Who said you cannot teach an old dog new tricks?
