Hi, I'm new here. But I'm really enthusiastic about nhs C5K and recommending it to all my friends. I've just done Session 1 of Week 8. It was hard to believe at the start of the program - when my groin was aching after just 30 seconds and I though I would expire! But achieving milestones along the way has not only made me fitter but also given me a mental boost - I feel a lot happier and more positive generally. I had my 60th birthday last year and am more focused on trying to achieve and maintain fitness as long as possible, despite occasional creaking knees. I hated running when I was young but now, although the first half of the run is always a struggle, you feel on a high when you finish. Who knows, I might even manage a half marathon sometime in the future. If I got this far, anything is possible! Thanks, Laura.
