Was that really a minute!

Hi gang! I completed my second c25k session of week 1 yesterday and am thoroughly enjoying it!

The app has sat on my phone for almost a year whilst I plucked up the courage/motivation to use it. Chiefly I felt that being badly overweight would lead to me just giving up quickly and just deleting it as a bad job.

After sensibly losing 49lbs since May 2016 I took on the challenge. Well 1 minute doesn't seem so long now! Good music hides the heavy breathing and regular encouragement from Michael Johnson feels personal!

The sense of achievement and the energy I feel for the rest of the day make it thoroughly worthwhile!

  • Good for you 😃👍

    It's good int it. Just keep plugging away nice and slow and you'll be fine.

    Yes, music is dead handy 😁

  • Well done. Week 1 is the hardest as you really don't know what to expect. However, once you see the rewards from your endeavors then the momentum builds and you wonder why you didn't do this before. Enjoy!!

  • Hooray! Well done.

    Music can be a real boon. It can also be terrible, when that epic slow ballad accidentally slips in your running mix 😉

  • Slow and steady and well done you!
