Lots of smug, self-satisfied comments hiding one important fact.
C25K DOES NOT WORK!
My ankles are very painfully tender at every slow step (even with support) & my back feels like it's snapping in 2. And yet I go through this for about 6 months (Inc a break of a couple of weeks about 3 months in) and still can't get anywhere near completing week 1 run.
Not only did I do this for fitness & weight loss reasons I was advised to try this to help in treatment for depression. However, far from improving my very low self-esteem, I ended up feeling a lot worse about myself. There is nothing as demoralising as being unable to do something that everyone can do, as this programme claims.
And yet all I hear is c25k, c25k, c25k.
For anyone considering starting this, don't. Someone tell the truth. It is a scam that doesn't work!!!
