Having said I would - I did!

Yesterday I posted that I would start my C25K adventure again today - and I did! Can't believe how nervous I felt. Run1 week 1 has been on my mind for a long, long time. I should have just got on with it! I'm pleased to be able to report that it went well - and yes, I know most of the time I was walking but at least I've STARTED and my adventure HAS begun. Thank you so much for all your encouragement yesterday. Stridingedge is back ;-)

  • Well done. Are you in the lake district? Striding edge was scary but sharp edge much worse for me. (Many years ago!)

  • I wish I was! Striding edge was scary enough for me. I was walking on my own, am scared of heights and it was VERY windy!

  • Well done!!! The saying is you cannot get to the top of stairs unless you take that first step......there are many more (sayings lol...and for that matter steps...I think I am rambling) but you've done it and I think it's the hardest(that and week 5 run 3😀) run!!!! You are officially off the couch..I do week 9 run 3 today and like many others on here it has nt taken 9 weeks.....so keep at it.

  • Well done you! The hardest step has been taken, now just dig deep and keep going. Just one foot after the other - take it slow!

  • Hooray! You've done the hardest bit which is to get started. Just take it nice and steady and obey Laura in all things and you will get there.

    Good luck!

  • I am really glad to hear that Stridingedge, do keep posting. And tell everyone your plans, it makes it harder to give up once you have raised expectations!
