I'm so glad 9 weeks ago I decided to start doing this plan.
I had lots of excuses not to :-
I'm too heavy (8stone over weight)
I'm too unfit (haven't done exercise in years)
I'm too embarrassed ( who wants to see an elephant jogging)
To name but a few, but I put those excuses to one side and bit the bullet, decided that the time had come to stop making excuses and to do something about it.
All I wanted to get out of the plan was to be able to run for 30 minutes and be a bit healthier, perhaps lose some weight. Well I did that but I got sooo much more out of it!
I read early on about people saying running changed their lives, and I'll be honest I thought yeah right ok. But now I understand what they meant.
On completion I have lost weight which is great, I can run for 30 minutes which is awesome, and I am also much healthier. But it's the way it makes you feel, the emotion you feel when you complete each of the runs, each achievement along the way left me feeling more and more elated and more confident and happy in general in my life.
So to anyone out there wondering should I do it, I say YES DO IT!!! And to anyone already started wondering if you'll be able to complete it, I say If I can do it you can!!!
It really has been one of the best things I have ever done! I can't wait to continue my running and see just how far I can run Thanks Laura, thanks c25k and thanks to everyone on this forum for your help and support you are amazing!
Wishing everyone out there EPIC runs 😀
