Couch to 5K

Post run compliments!

Today I went to get some breakfast at the end of my run girl at the check out in Tesco asked me how I keep so trim. I couldn't believe it. No ones ever said anything about my physique before. I nearly said " what are you talking about, last Christmas I was about the size of two of you" but I decided to use the opportunity to tell her about C25K. Anyone else got any similar stories?

Yep,

Happens all the time. Someone was talking about producing flyers for doctors surgeries etc but it would be great to have some to hand out to people who notice & comment.

Yep - loads of people at work, my customers and the "school run crowd" have all failed to recognise me on a few occasions as I'm half the man I used to be and they've asked how I managed to get so trim... People even said my skin looked better (weird)... Rock on C25K... My GP knows all about it (he is mad and runs 26.2 a few times a year) but it's a shame not more people know about it...

It's good int it! Well done you for losing weight and keeping it off through your running.

I have lost a lot of weight and find that running is the easiest way to keep it off. You have to maintain a healthy diet, but at least if you're running you can eat really well and not gain weight. Bring on the Yorkshire puddings!

What a lovely experience. Bless her for saying it :)

Wow, what a compliment :)

I'm sure you don't need any extra incentive to keep going, but if you start wavering then hopefully this will help!

How wonderful! I bet you feel absolutely amazing. We owe a lot to C25K - and our own efforts of course!

I didn't start running to lose weight, but I was hoping it would be a side effect! Four people at work today told me I'd lost weight today, so guess it is!

Sounds like a very sincere compliment so enjoy it. Best wishes. Fitmo
