Couch to 5K

Hello 😊

Hi everyone

Started c25k yesterday. I did start it last year and got to week 4/5 but then uni commitments and children got in the way. Anyway got some time off before the start of year 2 so fingers crossed 🤞🏽 this time.

Last year I was out in the parks but this time I've started in the gym. It was a bit of an impulse thing and really after so long off with no fitness I really didn't think I'd hack it outside.......yet!

Anyway my goals are to complete it this time and hopefully lose some weight at the same time.

I do love exercise and once I'm in it I give it my all but then when the pressures of uni and home life start exercise is bottom of the list but I do know the importance of it.

Anyway just wanted to say hi 👋

Welcome! Well done for coming back to the programme. Sometimes life gets in the way but you're back to it which is great. The first 4/5 weeks are the hardest in my opinion so you already know you can manage them! Go slow, stretch, take your rest days and you'll be graduating before you know it!

Good luck this time around. Life definitely gets in the way. Keep going - it does get easier and more enjoyable.
