Started c25k

My wife completed her first 8x1min runs on the programme, with just some acheing in the legs on the first 2 runs, then the rest were OK, and now looking forward to Wednesday.☺

As I ran with her I thought, was I really this slow? And yes I was! I asked her if she was holding back? No, was the answer, just what she was comfortable with..sometimes I can't believe how well I've come on! She did really well, but it's early days..😊

Good on her. Give her a pat on the back , or the bottom for that matter since youare the husband, and make her a cup of tea (no sugar).

Nice of you to stick by her and motivate her.

Good for her! Now I want to know how you got her to do it, I've been working on Baldy for ages, he says he will one day...

She always wanted to do it, but what spurred her on was how well I did with c25k and the determination to complete it and carry on running, from doing no excercise at all.. Plus a bribe..😀
