Coaching my wife through C25K

Just to put it out there (I haven't posted here for a while).

My wife's daughter has successfully cajoled my wife into doing C25K. She'd always said that running wasn't her thing, and that she'd never be able to do it.

We've just completed week 1, and I have to say I'm mightily impressed and proud of her. She's managed it with ease (despite saying she found it hard and that she was running out of breath).

Way to go, Jan! Onwards and upwards.

  • Well done Steve, another convert!

    Will you be doing the Oxford half again this year?

  • I will indeed! However, I'm not as prepared as last year because I've lost time with a couple of injuries. You?

  • I'm afraid not but I'll be there cheering the runners on. I've had the odd walk / run recently when I've had a good day but the body's really not up to it most of the time. Ho hum...:(

  • Another Jan.. good for her for starting the plan, and for you for encouraging and doing it with her. Its great having a running partner to discuss all the highs lows and details of a run with. I think thats why we all chat on here, as we all GET it.

    Im sure she will smash it with your help.

    Good luck Jan. Slow and steady..😊

  • Well done Steve and well done Mrs Steve. Please tell her from me I found it hard too!

  • Well done for getting a convert. Next she needs to join the forum 😀

  • Wow that's brave of you. I have visions of an almighty spat about week er two 😊

  • Great news, good for you both.

    While I have recruited some people, my OH ain't one of them!

    😀 🏃

  • Yeah ! Well done Steve and Jan ! :-) xxx
