Well I did it - Yay , go me ! Wore my lightweight running jacket but I was too hot. I need it at the moment as I can put my phone in the pocket, but my lovely hubby is treating me to one of those fancy armband pouchy thingies. Oooh get me :-) Just want to say how glad I am that I found this site , and youre all a great bunch of people, Keep running !

Sounds just like me poppypug! Today was first day I used the armband and it was fine. Getting too warm for even lightweight jacket. Which is nice! Keep going

Well done you! It's a wonderful feeling to be clocking up the sessions. I have an armband thingy and it's brilliant. It's soft enough to strap onto my bare arm without rubbing...lhope you manage to get one and enjoy running without getting too hot!

My old man bought me an armband thing for my mp3 player but I've lost that much weight it keeps slipping down. Ooooer. Who'da thought it

I think maybe you might get one meant for a woman. Mine isn't. I think I need a new one pronto

Well done its a great feeling isn't it, I bought my flashy armband thingy from sports direct 4.99 got some snazzy pink running earphones as well that don't drop out cos they're on a band, great for listening to podcasts or music ! Makes run go faster keep going it gets more fun as you do more :-) xx

Hi Towzer , thanks ! That's a really good idea about the running earphones , I shall keep an eye out for them or an ear to the ground should I say :-) I have downloaded the C25K wallchart and stuck it up so I can watch my progress, feels great I must say when I tick a run off :-)x

I agree. It's so supportive.

Hurrah! Well done! Keep going!
