Hi, I started C25k a few weeks ago. I don't find it easy but was so proud at achieving week 1 and then 2. Unfortunately I then went on holiday and although intending to continue whilst away it was far too hot and I couldn't. I've been back a couple of weeks now the first week suffering from cough and cold. I've felt chesty for 2nd week but disappointed with myself for not getting back on track. Last night I was determined to start again. I got up this morning determined to go to the gym to run. I changed that plan this morning and decided to run by the canal instead (been wanting to do this for so long but afraid to try). I have to say I didn't manage it but it was a wonderful experience. Traveling through beautiful scenery felt so much better than gym running. Unfortunately after my first run I was doubled up coughing and spluttering and being sick so I don't think I'm well enough yet.
I have learnt though that I really want to be fit enough to run outside.
