Hey there....I'm sooo enjoying reading the posts on here. You experienced runners are so supportive, even when you've answered the same questions/comments time and time again. Its brill....and thanks. Xx
I completed C25K on the treadmill on Christmas Day and v chuffed with myself..despite being the slowest runner ever and only managing 2.3k!!! Last night I walked 5k quite easily and tonight I started C25K again....outside!! After reading all your posts I'm realising a whole new world will open up to me if I run outside and I must admit, I loved the cool evening air and enjoyed the freedom and views. I ran with my wonderful 12 year old son (who put me to shame by leaping over posts, rapping as he ran and charging off like a bullet) and who is willing to run with me every time-bless him. My shins started hurting during week 8 on the treadmill and I don't just think its swapping to outside. Maybe its my trainers, maybe its my weight ( a lot to lose but 20lbs gone so far).
Just a grumble I suppose as I'm so keen on making progress that I don't want an injury to stop me now. I don't think I'll ever be the greatest runner but some of your tales are so inspirational, considering we all started in the same place.
Cheers all. Xxx
