W1R2 completed!

Hi guys/gals,

I have just got back from my second run of week 1 of the C25K programme. I completed run 1 on Sunday and had yesterday off so decided to do my 2nd run today as I was feeling ready again. I felt fine until I was half was through the 2nd running phase and was *so* relieved when Laura came on and said, "you've completed your 1 minute run!" I did complete it, but I was puffing like mad again during the walking phase and wasn't looking forward to Laura telling me to start running again! This inevitably happened again and again until she announced that I had completed all the running phases and just had a 5 minute walk to complete in order to warm down. That was music to my ears I can tell you! :D

Anyway, although it was very tough again, I did complete everything Laura asked of me and am now back home having a nice cold drink, non alcoholic of course! ;) and a tasty chicken sandwich feeling proud that I did it again and haven't been injured in the process! :)

I plan to have tomorrow off and do my 3rd run on Thursday.

Hi Lee

That's another one chalked off !

Yes it is tough at first but as you progress , you will get stronger . Each run/walk lays the foundations for the next one , it wont throw anything at you that youre not ready for.

Well done , youre doing great and nothings dropped off , that's got to be a bonus ! :-)

Keep going ! :-) xxx

Yes, I'm progressing...very slowly...but still it's progression though, eh?

And how do you know nothing's fallen off? Just because I never mentioned anything... ;) x

Well done Lee, it is really tough at the start, i remember the same feelings but you will find it all eventually comes together and your recovery time will get shorter. Its a fantastic programme, just keep listening to Laura!
