well, have come back to C25k after starting 6 months ago then dropping out due to a series of circumstances. Last time I really thought my chest was going to explode and my shins disintegrate, even in W1.
This time, with a pair of proper shoes and a more positive mental attitude ( I can do this and I will do this.) it is going much better. Did W3R1 today fairly comfortably, apart from swallowing some midges and coughing and choking at one point, but luckily that was right at the end of the first 3 min run. lol.
Genuinely never thought I would say this, but am actively looking forward to my next run.
