This is my first post and I wanted to share my couch25k journey so far.
I am 45 and have never really exercised at all.
I completed the first run of week 4 tonight and loved it.
The program is fantastic. The music and Laura's narration are brilliant.
3 months ago I weighed 97kg and could not run at all. I spent many weeks just repeating week 1 over and over. At the start my knees hurt, my hips hurt, but I took it slowly, listened to my body, recovered and then carried on, getting stronger all the time. I stayed on week 2 for about a week, did week 3 for 2 weeks and am now, 3 months later I'm at week 4. My advice is definitely do what's right for you! You don't have to do it in 9 weeks and if you are over weight at the beginning this will probably be a real challenge! Take it slow and you'll get there. I now weigh 82 Kg, feel great and more like a runner. The week 4 music is eclectic, one track is a great 80's sound-alike that reminds me of Nik Kershaw crossed with Duran Duran.
