Hello there from the Philippines! I've joined the forum a few weeks ago at the end of my second pass at week 4 and now that I'm about to finish, I thought that I should do my first post if only to thank you for the valuable information that has helped me go through the program. At the time, I was searching for info about Week 5 Run 3 because I was too scared to proceed even after repeating Week 4 already, then I've found you. After reading some of the posts especially those about taking it slow and trusting the program, I realized I was running too fast for my abilities. So I took the advice and was able to complete Week 5 and I've been visiting to forum ever since.
Now that with just 1 run to go, I just wanted to let you know that you've helped someone from the other side of the globe! Not just to finish C25K but perhaps to pick up a habit that may help me lead a healthier lifestyle. I'm 49 now and this is my first attempt at any running and I'm very pleased with the level of fitness I've achieved so far with the program which I might have quit had I haven't found this forum. Thank you so much and please keep helping newbies like me.
Cheers from the Land of the Morning, Philippines!
