C25K week one day one.. complete!
Have had the app on my phone for too long and finally used it tonight. Chest hurts, my legs are freezing and burning at the same time from the cold and my ears sting... but I survived. Time for a cup of tea, here's to doing it all again!
Well done🎉 You sound just like me a few days ago, apart from it nearly killed me😳 Sounds like you did just fine👍 There's lots of us new uns around so you're in good company😉 And as for those that have been here longer, you could not ask for any more support, advice, kind words, inspiration and encouragement 😀 Good luck👍
Well done for getting out there - you've done the hardest part now which is getting started! You've definitely earned that cup of tea!!
I like to wear a hat when running, saves the ears. well done for starting. keep posting
The fleece bands are good too, toastie ears but head not too hot!👍🏼
Well done you! on the way.. and looking good...if somewhat chilly!
You need a thermal running hat and a Buff!
Head bands are great in cold weather for the lugs
Welcome to the forum twentyseventeen, you've done the hardest run -the very first one! Running can be challenging at this time of year, to make sure you're warm enough but not too warm. A headband is good for keeping your ears warm and gloves will stop your hands freezing (and the skin drying out!) A buff is great to breathe through to warm up the air before it hits your lungs, but don't get a thermal buff -they're so hot you'll feel like you're on fire after a few hundred metres.
The best advice I can give you is to go really slowly -the programme is all about duration not speed or distance covered. You can work on speed later if you choose to. My other piece of advice is to stretch properly after each run to keep the post-run aches and pains away. If you check out the pinned posts at the side of the page you'll find the NHS guides to how to run and stretch properly. They're both packed with good advice and well worth reading. Good luck with your running journey. 🍀
That's the spirit! Well done for getting out there and starting. I bet your cup of tea tasted like nectar! Good luck with the rest of the programme. 👏🏻👏🏻😀😀🏃🏼♀️🏃🏻🏃🏼♀️🏃🏻
No matter how hard the run, it is always easier than coming up with excuses for why you didn't do it at all.
Well done for getting started- often the hardest bit!
I needed to read this.
Just finished doing the first run and felt like I was going to throw up during the walking intervals! Here's to positivity and getting our cardio on track!
weight? Will I start losing weight again or am I wasting my time? Feel a little disheartened! Any advice...
could woo hoo and yee ha to my heart's content this time but actually I was feeling a bit down as I'd be...
