After having been reading the very encouraging posts on here, I thought I would say hello.
I started the C25K two weeks ago and have just completed week two. I have enjoyed the challenge so far, but when I look ahead at future weeks it looks quite daunting! Our village is not flat at all ....gentle rolling hills everywhere, which is a bit hard at times.
Many years ago at school I was a reasonable sprinter, but whenever I tried to run longer distances I failed dismally. Looking back, it was because I set off too fast and tried to keep the pace up. I ended up worn out and aching and gave up.
Now that I have reached the ripe old age of 58, have had several injuries over the last couple of years, have put on a couple of stones and have asthma, I think I am ready to try to go more steadily.
I want to lose the weight I have put on and get fitter. I am on a calorie controlled diet and C25K seems a brilliant idea. It must be so much easier to keep going with all the support from this group.
Right now, I am wondering if I will cope with three minutes of running at a time next week!
I am looking forward to getting to know the lovely people in this community.
