Well I done my first run walk today. Managed to finish it but found it hard. I am a 59 and so unfit woman lol!!!!! Gave up work a few weeks ago and had a job where I was on my feet all the time. Felt I needed to do something. Set my reminder for my next run/walk Friday.

Just take it very slow and steady...and you will get there..just keep posting!!

Welcome to the best running club in the world, you've done the hardest part. I hope you kicked the sofa long and hard! Basic rules of the forum are:-

Take a pic of new trainers, so we can all drool...Oh and then go shopping, I wonder if Google ever realised the power of a C25K trainers pic?

Post a pic if you're somewhere new, we love a tourist running pic! Basically this gives us all an excuse to go travelling...

Anything else really up to you, if you want to post about your runs - fab, if you need help or encouragement, we will see what we can do to support you.

Have a nice rest today, and good luck for Friday. Btw just being nosy which coach did you choose?

Happy running....

Well done for starting and welcome to the world of running! All good advice here, take it slow, trust the program and don't get freaked out by what is coming up next - you will cope with it when you are ready. And if that means a few practice runs or even repeating a week here and there, that's fine - we are all different and the beauty of this program means you can adapt it to work exactly as you need it to.

Good luck and have fun!
