I do have the 'black dog' of depression with me at all times, sometimes a large dog and sometimes a chihuahua. (Check out the internet for black dog if you wonder what I mean). Anyway suffice to say, I am overweight unfit, high bp and low self esteem. I am not on medication. I suffer constant headaches and use a mouth guard & paracetamol to reduce my tension, and teeth grinding overnight. I also leave delta waves music playing all night to help get a good night's sleep. I don't see or talk to many people.
The point of this post is to just say how positive I have already found this C25k course. I thought after the very first run that I wouldn't continue, but I have. I dragged my kids with me last week during half term and I ran in the dark on Sun evening due to the clocks change. I actually looked forward to today's run, sleeping better and letting go of some anxiety. I hope I can keep this feeling.
