Hi all. Just wanted to share my experiences so far with C25K. I am 57, just under 6ft tall and weigh in at 15 stone. I have a treadmill at home, well my wife wanted to use one but didn't want to go to the gym so I thought I would try it as well, I am not fit but am active, play a lot of golf and always carry my clubs and we walk a lot as well. The first hurdle was how to get started and like everyone here found the C25K programme, I started in mid-April and it's been great. I had lots of great intentions to follow the programme religiously but travelling with work meant that I missed days and even weeks but I kept going, if I missed too long a period I just went back a week and I am now just about to do week 6 run 3, that will be sometime this week, I have to say that so far I have not struggled, that’s not me boasting but more me being surprised, I have never ever enjoyed running and now I do, must be an age thing. I did pick up a calf strain early on that kept me off for 2 weeks, I felt some pain and thought I would run it off, I shouldn't have done but you learn from your mistakes. Although I use a treadmill I sometimes need something to get my rhythm going and find counting steps really helps, just 1, 2, 2, 1 or anything that keeps a rhythm in my head. I have also just brought a pair of running shoes, I was measured for my gait etc. and came out neutral, they do make a difference, my feet feel much more stable on landing and they are so much lighter, I am sure I heard the staff sniggering at my 10 year old trainers but I think they are a great investment although staggered at how much running shoes can cost! My speed is quite slow, I run at 6k but want to get through the programme and then build the speed up and like many others I struggle to breathe through my nose, I tried and it just didn’t work so I don’t even think about doing that now. I doubt I’ll do it this year but if all goes well I am now thinking about entering a 5k next year but at the moment the goal is to finish the programme and then pick the speed up, I’ll let you know how it goes.
