  • The C25K programme is brilliant! If it can get an old, overweight ex-smoker like me to run 5K (which it has) then it can certainly work for you. Good luck!

  • Thank you for the encouragement...

  • Well done for getting started - that's the hardest bit. If you need convincing that this programme really works wonders, just read some of the stories on here - you will feel inspired to keep going.

    Good luck - let us know how it goes.

  • Wil let you know...thank you...

  • Well done Fran.

    Slow and steady is the key.

  • Thank you for advice..will follow them...

  • Stick with it Fran, Your progress in the next few weeks will give you all the motivation you need.

  • Awh thank you..

  • You can do it Fran ! One foot in front of the other , slow and steady is the way .

    Keep posting and keep going, you're doing great ! Xxx

  • Awh thank you...

  • Well done. The first session is definitely the hardest. Keep going! X

  • Thank you

  • I've just done w1r1 as well. I thought I was reasonably fit, well, not quite couch level, but it turns out i'm absolutely knackered and had to sit on a bench at the end. Onwards and upwards eh?

  • Ahw well done, thats great ...keep going..onwards and upwards...

  • Hi Fran04, I know EXACTLY how you feel but I am so determined to do this. I am really impressed with all the lovely, positive, encouraging posts on here. I have just finished W2R3 and I agree, it's a killer. But try to stay motivated and I'm sure you (and i, and all of us) will get through it.
