I was a total anti-runner! I used to very royally take the mick out of my running friend. Anyway I have been swimming regularly for about 12 months and have enjoyed being more active. However I had my eyes lasered so had to stop swimming for four weeks. I decided that I would look at the c25k as a stop gap as I could run after a week of my eyes being done. I started the c25k a week and a few days before I had my eyes done.
It was such hard work to begin with. I liked it immediately though.
Today I did Week 8 Day 1! I ran the quickest I have ever ran and was sprinting at the end. I think I could have gone to 30 minutes with ease to be honest. I absolutely love it!
I can only say to anyone starting out - just keep going. Once you are doing the long runs it really is amazingly good fun!!!!
