Hello! I've just started week 2 after surprising myself at managing week 1... It's taken me weeks to gather up the courage to actually get out and start as there are an awful lot of silky haired long limbed gazelles running around here, but after lurking on this forum and reading the stories and advice (particularly about keeping it slow) I found a quiet nature reserve nearby and got going. There's a good network of non-paved paths for variety, discovered a herd of cows helps inspire maintaining a brisk walking pace, and in my head I become one of the neighbourhood gazelles until I catch a glimpse of my shadow and see the reality of the tubby 40-something person shuffling along
I'm determined to stick with the C25K and wondered about knowing when you're ready to move on to the next week... Would you say successfully running three runs of that week or two of the three? I can't really listen to my body as I think it's still in shock and ashamed to say I'm a bit clueless about fitness/running, this is all very new!!
