Well I am a large 35 year old lady who has been doing the c25 for the last 7 weeks now and I have been doing fantastic. I have never been able to run before and the motivation from the podcast has been so helpful - i have not missed a run and have never given up or stopped and walked mid run. I have even been running with a broken hand (i tripped over my dog while running week 4 and fell - i knew exercise was no good for me :-)). I was so pleased with myself. I did the 25 minute run twice without stopping. No real aches and pains. I then came to do the run the third time and i struggled a lot (all runs are a struggle but this was worse than normal) I had to stop 4 times. I kept pausing the app and then starting it again. Right I thought i have pushed myself a bit too hard I will go back to week 6 and do a bit of interval again to build myself back up. I tried that - i couldn't manage more than a minute so rather than give up I did week 1 run 1 and blow me i got to the 6th run and had to stop after 30 seconds i was knackered - my breathing felt all off and i just couldn't put one foot in front of the other. Now i feel miserable - my energy levels seems to have been worsening over the last week but i don't feel unwell in myself. Any suggestions anyone i need a mental kick up the rear end!!! xxx
