well, after managing to get as far as week 7 last time before an ankle injury, it's been three years since I've even thought about running. I was gutted at the time as i'd bought the t-shirt (literally) as I expected to complete the programme, and had a 5k charity run booked. since the injury, I've told myself i'm too old to try again (i'm 54 now) I've eaten badly, and done little exercise. This means my fitness was at it's worst ever, and my weight at my heaviest.
I finally got a grip of my diet 8 weeks ago and have lost a stone already, and the healthy Mediterranean style diet has given a massive boost to my wellbeing and energy levels (anyone who wants to try them look at Lousie Parkers book).
I signed up to the global corporate challenge (10k steps type of thing) which gave me a gentle start back into exercise.
well, it has all had such a positive effect that today was day 2 of week 1 of C25K. I found it much easier than I did last time which surprised me, despite jogging uphills and faster than I would like as I had the dog in tow (well, the dog had me in tow)
can't wait for Monday for my next run, and lovely to see others posting who are also enjoying this programme, it's definitely worth it!
