Note to self..... Sunday morning runs are not good when you've been our Saturday night! Think I'll stick to the 5.15am in the week.... also, less people around to watch my fat wobble! This one was a struggle but more mentally I think, although drinking the night before didn't help! I'm totally paranoid that people are watching and criticising me. Has anyone else felt that? All said.... I've achieved the first week! I've really enjoyed it and the "wellbeing" I've felt has been amazing. I can understand how people get hooked on running. What a buzz! Looking forward to starting W2R1 on Tuesday!

  • People often watched and criticised me when I was out drinking on a Saturday night. It wasn't paranoia.

  • That's funny!! :-)

  • Lots and lots of people worry about this. But soon you will be just so proud of yourself for getting out there that you will just think 'sod it'. In a few weeks you stronger, sleeker and more toned...Just you wait, you'll be HOT :)

    What did you think before C25k and you saw runners, was it "oh look at that fat person" or "I wish I could do that"

  • I never thought of it from that point of view! I was definitely a "wish I could do that" person..... hey! And now I am!! Thank you!
