So, on my third attempt at the C25K (finished both times but operations stopped me in my tracks). I had hoped to finished by the end of Feb but I got Ill at week 6 and then various work things cropped up including a some travel, and then the weather was dire and then I went overseas for a short while for work, and so bang went the plan.
Anyway, decided not to start again as I am out of the country for a month from next week and realistically am tied up with work until June, incuding another overseas trip (that one being stuck in a room for 5 days training people in a country where you can't rally go out alone as a woman).
But I did pop out today and despite a 2 month break managed a slow 10 mins without dying. I am going to try and do some short jogs until I go (hopefully daily) and then restart from week 4 or something when I am back. I think this is probably the last of my overseas trip for several years but when the opportunities for travel come, I'm not going to turn them down :0)
I have missed getting out in the fresh air and am cross I got too sick to continue the programme (overwork and stress plus a stinker of a cold). I am determined to try to make time for regular exercise but it is so hard and as I have no one to push me out the door, or moan at me if I don't eat properly or take regular exercise, it's far too easy to let work take over totally (keeps me busy and I mostly love my job anyway).
Does anyone know of a site where there is support for people like me: one where I need to check in a bit like weight watchers to encourage me. I joined a gym but then restarted this and not once did anyone contact me to see why I wasn't going. I ned a place with some accountability (no running club will have me as I can't do 30 mins and I genuinely don't have anyone I could Jog with)
Sorry for the long post.
