Flying High Now!

I remember week 1 run 1 and how painfully self conscious I was and how out of breath I was but how immensely proud I was that I finished the first run. My second run was in the poring (monsoon) rain and my third in glorious sunshine and so the weeks have gone by and each week I have been so pleased with myself. C25K is more than a running app, it's a confidence, self-esteem

builder, stress buster, anxiety banisher and many other things app/podcast. Today 8 weeks after my first run I have completed week 9 run 3. I ran 4.23km in 30 minutes. My next challenge is 5k in under 30 minutes.

A huge thank you to all you lovely people on this forum who have encouraged me and given me advice. Especially when I didn't want to run in the rain... and when my new trainers hurt (they don't now).

Happy running all.

Helein xx
