Signed up for the c25k a while ago and have been shuffling round the pennine lanes around home eve since. This week have found the whole process coming together really well. Lots of muscle soreness which I have worked on with stretching, protein either side of running and gentle sessions in the gym on the cross trainer to massage the muscles back to life.

This morning - bright blissful sunshine and went straight on instead of turning left. 8K and feeling really satisfied with the week.

  • Well done you have every right to feel smug. Sounds like a good run, I love those runs where you just shake them up as you go along.

  • Sounds a great run. :) Also sounds like your hooked! Welcome to the club. :)

  • And so you should be! Sounds like it's going great.

  • Well done! Keep going slow but sure

    You don't need extra food for C25k. If you are eating at the start and the end you will gain weight. You don't need to take extra food on board til you're running in excess half marathon territory.

    Just stick to a healthy eating plan and you'll be fine

    Good luck

  • When I say Protein I do mean a small handful of almonds! I have read so many posts fretting about eating on shorter runs. I looked into muscle soreness and stretching and a bit of protein were recommended. That and a bit of corse training has got me over this really quickly.

  • Wow Thanks for the support folks! I'm really quite moved!

  • Almonds and cashews are better than sweets which make your mouth and hands cacky. I hate that!

  • Well done... Sounds like you've got the love :)
