I have managed to talk my friend into trying the C25k programme as she would love to run, wants to get fitter and wants to lose weight. I completed week 7.3 this morning and went with her for week 1.1 this afternoon. My 9 year old son came along and encouraged from the sidelines on his bike 'put your back into it' 'your bums are wobbly' etc which kept her spirits up nicely. I'm really pleased she is now on board BUT she has turned the tables and seemingly I have to stop smoking. So watch this space. My 20 a day habit may be getting ditched, which I totally know it should. My son doesn't even know I smoke! This C25k may have more health benefits than I ever imagined.
