27 runs with Laura !!!

Completed week 9 run 3 today !! Have had a heavy cold( manflu) for the last week so has been an effort but I have crossed the finish line :) What a great plan and forum C25K is .

I am 50+ slightly overweight and haven't run since cross-country at school . The 1st few weeks my legs ached but now I feel energised after a run . In week 8 I was up to 4K and this last week I have gone over 4K despite coughing !! My next goal is running 5K with a charity run on Sunday to start me off .

The scales have not changed a great deal but am constantly being told I look well/slimmer :)

Thanks for all the tips/inspiration I may not have acknowledged ( only found this forum halfway through the plan)
