Completed C25K

Completed Week9 Run3 today.. it really does'nt matter how fast how long I ran. It is a wonderful to know that I can run 30 mins without stopping and can consistently do it. When I started it was a difficult goal for me given that I have not been active for a long and from there to run 30 mins is great. I am proud of my achievement.

During this 9 week journey, I have not lost any weight, which I am not really concerned about, but I feel great that I have achieved the goal I have set couple of months back which is all it matters.

Anyone starting C25K I would say it is not easy but the rewards of completing is multi fold both physically and mentally. Keep running and you can do it.

Finally it would not have been possible without the wonderful support of so many people here. You all are awesome. This is the best online group I have been everyone is so positive. I have learnt so much and gave me so many ideas about how to achieve my goal.

  • Congratulations its the best feeling ever enjoy your graduation day :) Don't forget your badge and happy running :) :)

  • Well done. As far as weight loss goes, if you measure our physical efforts in terms of power output, even Lance Armstrong talking about "burning" calories is a bit of a vanity. Just being alive burns most of what you eat, even if you exercise. So to lose weight you have to undereat a bit. There's no way round that fundamental rule.

    And you should not er ... over-undereat (that sounds a bit like George Bush, doesn't it?). It's a matter of putting on some muscle, exercising enough so that your body doesn't spare its precious fat when there's unused muscle that can be consumed instead, and undereating. The weight loss forum can tell you if that little amateur physiological.

    But isn't it great to actually Enjoy this running thing?
