Week 1 competed - my thoughts so far

Well, I've completed Run 3 of Week 1 tonight and it certainly feels good :) I have to say that I've enjoyed the first week and really looking forward to Week 2. I know I've only completed three runs but it's amazing how good I feel in myself and how much of a lift it's given me.

The main reasons for me wanting to undertake the C25K were to improve my fitness level and to lose about a stone in weight (my BMI is 26.7 and I'm approximately 11lbs above my ideal weight). After this first week, and with the ongoing support of this great forum, I feel I'm well on my way to accomplishing those goals but, of course, only time will tell.

Wishing everyone continued success in their attempt at the C25K and look forward to reading all about it.

Week 2 here I come :)

Regards, Paul

  • Well done! My third run is tomorrow, but after a tough second run yesterday I might play it safe and repeat a run before going on to week 2. Time (or rather my aching legs!) will tell ;)

  • That second run ! When you ache all over from the first one is SO hard, it was definitely my very worst one but magically the third was much easier and less painful.

  • Thanks, ufon. Hope your 3rd run is easier than your second. As you say, listening to your body is the way to go. Good luck.

  • Well done......I did week 1 run 3 yesterday and felt a real sense of achievement so here's to week 2!

  • Thank you. Good luck with week 2.

  • Well done... Sounds like you are right on track :)

  • Thanks. So far so good ;)

  • Well done on completing week 1. Three runs is three runs and enough to make you feel good and give you a sense of achievement. Good luck with week 2 and best wishes.

  • Thank you, Fitmo.

  • I think when you know that you have taken positive and definite action and you have a goal in sight it does give you a real boost. I look forward to following your running adventures, good luck !!

  • I think you're right. Thank you :)

  • Lol. Yep, it did go quick which must mean I'm enjoying it ;)

  • H! Good! Tell us how week 2 is going. W1R2 tomorrow for me, let's see.

  • I will and good luck with your second run.

  • Well done!!! I'm like you and feel a huge amount of satisfaction as each week is complete. I am also pleased to say that the sense of satisfaction gets bigger as the weeks go by. I will finish week 6 r3 on Wednesday and I am so excited about it. Go and get week 2

  • Hi laurae. That's good to know. :)

  • Yay, congrats on week 1! I should get there too on Wednesday.

  • Thanks and good luck for run 3 ;)

  • Well done Paul, run three today for me!

  • Lol. I would, Emma but then I'd feel guilty about depriving you of the pleasure ;)
