I've just read a post from Joanne37 and it got me thinking about why people decide to start the c25k or decide to just get fitter. What was it that made you get up one day and say to yourself 'this will be the day I start looking after myself'? What was the 'trigger'?
I'd be interested in hearing about your 'trigger'. To start things off, this was mine..........
For me, it was when my two daughters had visited a medium.......bear with me
They visited this person approximately a year ago and they were told at the time that their father (me) was going to sustain an injury to their foot. I broke my toe being chased by my then, two year old grandson, who was chasing me with a toy snake I wasn't wearing any shoes and I kicked a wooden door frame which resulted in my toe pointing in a totally different direction to what it should have been!
About 6 weeks ago my two daughters visited this person again and they were told someone called Paul (I'm called Paul) was going to be visiting the hospital regarding an issue with their chest and that they needed to stop stressing about things and start looking after themselves and eating more healthily. THE SAME DAY that they were seeing this medium, I was taken by a work colleague to hospital because I was experiencing bad chest pains, sweating and feeling nauseous whilst at work! After having a full check up I was relieved to hear that it wasn't any issue with my heart but chest muscle spasms possibly caused by stress!
I'm not necessarily a believer in all of this (I do, however, tend to have an open mind) but a few days after this incident, and with the words of the medium still ringing in my ears, I decided it was time I started looking after myself better and my journey on the C25K began
So, what was your 'trigger'?
