Hi! I am just sitting in my lounge and 5 runners have gone by (separately) that look like they are doing C25K - you can tell by the walking periods. I want to join them but it's my rest day (Wk5 R2 next)! How fabulous is this app?! I just love it! Getting people out and moving!! πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ

Not in Denmark. Yet. But with my never ending praise of the programme, it will spread like a bug.

I find that, if we're out in the car, I'm saying 'there's another one, there's another one' etc. My poor husband, I think he just switches off, but since starting this, I see runners everywhere!

I do that too! And I was thinking that people starting the programme feel a bit self conscious when people stare at them but the 'starers' are probably all of us newish runners trying to see if they are also c25k-ers!

Ha ha Me too Donna ! Before I did the programme , I used to see runners running in the pouring rain , and in all weathers , running on Christmas Day etc and I used to think , are they mad ???

Now, I am exactly the same , and when I'm in the car and see another runner I am fascinated by what shoes have they got ? I wonder how far they've gone today ? Are they training for a race ? I wonder where theyre going ? Ha ha !

This bug BITES !!! :-D xxx

It is an amazing app. I am still in disbelief on most runs that it is actually me doing this amazing thing, something I really didn't feel I was capable of. It's so simple but brings so much positivity which just spills over. Glad you are enjoying it, keep at it, it just gets better.

If I can be honest I used to look at runners & think either ' they are nuts' or ' god, how slow'. Having now completed the programme & finding it challenging, I want to applause every runner, shout encouragement and admire every single one. Until you start from nothing & realise anyone can do it, you just don't get it. Now I get it!!!!!!!!!
