10 weeks ago I decided to make some changes and start enjoying life. I quit my job to take the summer off with my family, quit my 30 a day smoking habit, and started c25k after 20 years of no exercise and poor diet. Like most people here, I didn't really believe I'd ever run 5k, but with each passing week I felt better in myself and wanted to push on. I finally run 5k in 30.52 tonight, and im chuffed to bits. Next step is sub 30 mins and park runs, and to just keep the running habit going. Ive really started to enjoy it (except week 7, but I'm even glad that i had to fight through that). Thanks to everyone that comments here, it's a really great forum and your words really help. Good luck to those starting out and to those who are struggling, please persevere and reap the rewards. As a side note, I started a new job 4 days ago, I'm 11lbs lighter and I've saved £1000 by not smoking. C25k has really helped to change my life. Now to get my badge 😀😀😀😀
