So I have just completed my first day of Couch to 5K!
I am 25 years old, slightly overweight and thought I was totally incapable of running!
My mum, dad and boyfriend are keen runners (or I consider them to be so!) and go running 3+ times a week. After seeing my mums impressive weight loss with running I decided I needed to give it a go, I have tried numerous 5K park run's but am always a little defeated afterwards as struggle so much (walking the majority) and end up coming last.
I decided to use the C25K app to improve my running and hopefully achieve running 5K without stopping.
I really enjoyed my run this morning, I managed to do all of the 60 seconds running without stopping, although found some of them difficult, however the park where I was running had a few inclines so I maybe need to find somewhere a little flatter!
It has only been a couple of hours since I completed my run and I am already aching! Hopefully that means I wont be aching tomorrow.
I plan on having a rest day tomorrow and then another run on Wednesday night!
Wish me luck and any advice or motivation would be welcomed!
