I'm back .... well sort of!!!

Thanks to all the really up-beat encouragement on this blog I'm back. I started the C25K a little while back, stopped because I found it frankly too hard for me (despite being active in other ways, like gym, rowing machine etc.) : why did I stop? Well ... a veritable mixture of huge numbers of very vocal gremlins, setting myself over-ambitious targets/expectations & giving in to feeling tired! (WIMP!!!!!) Everyone to their own, but I decided that a pre-C25K was what I needed, so I found a 3 week programme and have nearly finished week 3 of that programme. It means I can re-start C25K sometime next week. . Thanks to all you guys I am DETERMINED to get there in the end ... if it means repeating weeks as I go along then that will be disappointing but OK. Help keep me motivated, please! Glad to be (aalmost) back.

My mum is fond of saying, "Take the long term view!" about things. It sounds as though that's what you've done. You've found a way to make this happen and you're going for it. So well done. xx


What a good idea to do the 3 week course - great that you're about to re-start C25K. Make sure you run really slowly - it helps such a lot! Enjoy!
