First Jog Complete!! =) Couch to 5K and NHS Weight Loss Communities

Hiya all =)

I went for my first jog yesterday with a friend! All the supportive and helpful comments on here relaxed and encouraged me before the jog, so thank you!! It felt great just walking past all the sunbathing students (I live in Uni Halls) in trackies and a vest top like, "yes that's right, I'm going jogging." ;) Haha, and then the jog itself wasn't nearly as scary as I had thought!

We went along by the canal and I thought the people walking would stare etc. but everyone was just doing their own thing and moved out of the way for us and it was so beautiful there too!

The first half of the jog went very well but unfortunately my friend fell over, so we took the jog back a bit easier. She was fine - she's got a sense of humour so we had a good laugh about it!!

Feeling achey today but that's great!! It's great to feel as if it's actually making a difference. :)

Thank you so much for all the support, it's great to do this journey with everyone on here.

Deadly Furby =)

  • Well done on getting started. You need to start stretching out after the runs - it helps with the stiffness.

    Try these stretches to avoid aching muscles the day after running. Lovely photo btw:)
