I haven't run anywhere (not even for a bus) in years and I have been getting steadily less well and less fit as time goes on. Seeing my daughter looking fabulous in a dress that used to look fabulous on me four years ago made me wonder if being that slim, that healthy and that vibrant was totally out of reach for me now? Only if I choose to do nothing, I suppose, which is why I've determined to complete the C25K. Day one of week one went better than I'd imagined. I realise this is not great in terms of fitness but I was pleased to be able to do anything at all quite honestly and I managed the brisk five minute warm up walk and three 60 second runs and three 90 second walks. (Plus half an hour on a stationary bike earlier on in the day).
Tomorrow I'm investing in a proper pair of trainers instead of the 'leisure shoes' from the supermarket that I made do with today. My ankles might have a better chance of surviving this that way. All in all though, I'm glad I made the start.
