I've done it!

Having downloaded C25K a few times, I finally plucked up the courage and did my first session this morning. I'm going to the gym and using a treadmill because I know it'll work better for me, especially at this time of the year. But I'd kept putting off because I'd feel self conscious. But I started the app, put some good music on and actually really enjoyed it. I haven't run for well over 30 years so it was a bit of a shock to the system, but nowhere near as bad as I feared. Can't wait for the second session on Friday now.

Well done on starting. Keeping checking in to the forum. I found it helped with motivation in doing the runs, as well as any advice you may need.

Good luck with the rest of the runs.

Well done. The hardest part is over I.e. Starting. I do my runs at gym I find the treadmill keeps me at right pace. When I started I really struggled to run for one min. I am now starting week 8. Keep to the podcasts they do work. Good luck
