I actually started the C25K last October and fizzled out in the first week. The darkening nights and cold weather was more than enough to stop me struggling into sweatpants and sussing out the local park after work. But now it's spring...summer's just around the corner, festival season is about to get under way and I'm sick of carrying some extra weight and huffing my way up three flights of stairs to my flat.
Right now, I'm more than a little sceptical that in a few short weeks I could be running for extended periods of time, being that I haven't ran properly since the early years of secondary school. But reading through other peoples experiences, I've made the decision to break this seriously unfit barrier and persevere. I'm writing this because I'm the mother of all procrastinators and it's a habit I would dearly love to break in many aspects of my life. I'm hoping that if I can finally achieve something like this it will also push me to get my ass into gear in other ways. Fingers crossed
So I've my running gear with me in work and I'm planning to walk/run my way home this evening with the C25K app, and hoping I don't keel over into the canal.
Here's hoping I'm back to update towards the end of the week, with three runs under my belt!
