W1R1 - buzzing!

After telling myself for months I'm going to do this (I've literally had the app sitting on my phone untouched since before christmas😳) today I dragged myself out of bed and just completed my first C25K run! I'm absolutely buzzing! Didn't think I would do it, but it was actually easier than I expected. I'm not saying it was easy, run sections 1 & 2 nearly killed me, but I got there!😄

  • Well done...You are on the way :)

    You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

    Go you!

  • I'm a wk 1 newbie too! Did day 2 today and feeling good about it! Looking forward to progressing and improving! It's great to find another wk 1 runner! 😀

  • Well done and welcome :)

    Watch out- it's highly addictive!

    Stick with the program, trust Laura, and if you have to go slow, it really means s l o w!

    Looking forward to your posts, good luck :)

  • Well, if you go nice and steady you'll be fine. Folks only seem to hit the buffers if they go too quick

    Good for you for making a start. That's the hardest bit done!

    C25k is great. You'll amaze yourself but you have to be stoic. Keep plugging away slow but sure

  • Well done. I started in Jan. First day I could have exploded or died. Tonight I've run for 31 mins. Not breaking Olympic records but I still did it. Stick with it even when it seems impossible

  • Well done. Today may be the day that I download the app! Maybe.....

  • There is no app to download it has disappeared .  However yes do it get running I did the programme and graduated 2 weeks ago and still going strong.  Not as fast as everyone else 47 min 5k but still running non stop and improving.  

  • Not so confident today - feel like I'm dying! My left knee hurts, my right thigh hurts, I've got a blister on my right heel. Although a busy morning at work stopped me having time to feel sorry for myself.

    Now I understand the need for the rest day!
