From the couch

I can't believe I'm writing this from my couch but...week 9 run 1 DONE today! I feel so good, I can't believe it, loved it and hated it :-) . My next decision is whether I run 2 more times with Laura and the awful Julie (at least she's in the warm up this week) or go with my own tunes. I'm not sure I'm strong enough to dump Laura yet but, as so many have said, the music is bad. Decision by Monday. This is a bit garbled, sorry I might be a bit tired! Woop woop.

  • Excellent, well done! Shiny badge in sight πŸ˜€

  • Thanks. This forum has been so supportive. I can see the badge shining at the end of the tunnel.

  • You may as well stick with her for only two more runs. Then you get your shiny badge and can listen to what you want.

  • Thank you and I think I agree. I've been taking one ear piece out and listening to nature as much as possible. I think I'll feel more genuine c25k if I do the whole thing (30 min is not 5k.... yet)

  • Well done, you have done brilliantly !

    Not long to go now ! :-) xxx

  • Thanks. I'm so glad I tried this and the forum was here. I'm looking forward to my next run (that is an achievement).

  • Bloody Julie!! Me and Julie. I agree, why why why did they do that to us?? All day Julie is my head. Congrats on your run. So close now! πŸ˜€

  • Thank you. I am so close and it is amazing. I think I have to put up with Julie at least 2 more times though. Someone should be made to suffer for putting Julie on the program, she seems to have pushed everyone over the edge haha :-}

  • All this 'Julie' talk puzzled me as I have an early 'Laura' where I listen to my own music. It's was only after my daughter's phone lost the app and she had to download the podcast that I had any idea who (or what!) Julie was! I was in blissful, and it sounds like blessed, ignorance 😊!!

  • Oh.. you haven't had enough of Julie yet... 2 more times πŸ˜‰

    Well done 1903 sounds like your run went well. Love, hate.. can't wait to do it again.. yes, yes and yes..😊

    Almost there.Good luck.x

  • Well done, you're so close now! Enjoy your last two runs! :) I'd say stick with Laura and Julie as you'll miss them when they're gone... :)

  • Thank you. I think you're right. I'm already feeling emotional about saying goodbye to Laura. Strange but true.
