Last night I covered 10K, 10.4 actually for the first time since starting C25K in early January. It was slow, 99 minutes. I used set run-walk intervals (2 mins run/1 min walk), because I've found that suits me a LOT better than continuous running. I also had to put in 6 minutes walking up the last hill because I just could not face trying to run up even part of it. However, I feel satisfied with this achievement.
Today, I recorded 20 pounds lost in weight since the beginning of the year. My BMI has gone down from 32.3 to 28.9 and I've lost just over 10% of my starting weight (from 13 stone 6 to 12 stone 0).
On non-running days, I've started using the adjustable dumbbell and adjustable ankle weight sets that had been sitting unused in the cupboard for more than five years. Sometimes I go swimming instead and do 40-60 lengths.
Amazingly, I also have more energy for my work than I've had for a long time! This is the first time in my life (I'm 60) that fitness has become enjoyable for its own sake. I think the very gradual approach of C25K has helped a lot with that, as has being on a forum where there are many others with similar levels of performance to mine. I no longer feel as useless as I was made to feel during sports at school and whenever I tried to do anything active with other people after leaving school.
