Persevere, C25kers. You'll be glad you did.

I stated using Strava on 23rd September, about five months after graduating C25k. I've only just noticed that there's an option to view your stats as a whole.

I'm over the moon to discover that since 23rd of September I have been on 30 runs, I've run 190km, I've run for 20hours 57minutes, and gained 1,623m elevation.

I'm sharing this "newsflash" not to boast but to encourage everyone still on the C25k plan, especially those at the beginning. I struggled with Week One (and all the weeks!) but am so glad I persevered.

Go for it everyone! Honestly, if I can do it everyone can. :)

The 'stats as a whole' are the best ones. Your speed and distances may come and go, but the lifetime buildup of all your runs is amazing.

OOh, where is it on Strava please Anne? I've recently started using Strava , haven't quite got to grips with it yet...I was disappointed to only be able to import 9 of my Garmin runs, is that right? I was hoping to see everything there all together...

I think you should be able to do it manually if you connect your garmin to your pc and then copy and paste the.fit files for the runs that are missing from strava - there's a strava support page that tells you how.

I've just recently (Black Friday) bought a Garmin Forerunner but haven't figured out how to work it yet! Go with orchards advice. :)

Thanks. I'm quite chuffed. Last week I ran 25km. I am not joking when I say that I am absolutely certain that I had not run a total of 25km in my whole life before I began this plan, never mind in one week!
