I have been doing the couch to 5k using a different app on my phone. I did 4 weeks and got to the stage where I could run for 5 minutes without stopping. But then...
I came down with a horrible head cold. Ive been really congested with a cough and it's only just starting to clear after a week. I didn't run as I didn't want to make it worse. But now i'm getting better i'm struggling to work up the enthusiasm to get running again. The weather has got colder, my calendar is filling up with after-work drinks (I run in the evenings, hate running in the mornings!) so I don't think I'll have the time to keep up with a run every other day, and if I did, the end of the 8 weeks would collide with Christmas and new year when I will mostly be getting merry with a bottle of wine and cheeseboard.
I know I should just keep going so I don't lose my fitness and before this I was really enjoying it. I just need a push... off the sofa and out the door. and someone take these mince pies off me!
