I have been 'lurking' on this site for some time now, but have never made a post before. I am 65 and am not too hot with social media (can you believe I don't even have a facebook or twitter account?)
This morning I just completed my graduation run, and just had to write to say a big thank you to everyone on this forum. The help, advice and encouragement you all give has really helped me get to this point, which I never thought was possible. Special thanks to the mentors, whose words of wisdom really help.
To everyone starting out I would just like to say keep on going, C25K really works. I was that total couch potato, having spent 45 years glued to, alternately, my car seat, office chair, and sofa. Now I can run for 30 minutes, although I am only covering about 4.3 Km so far. If I can do this, so can you.
My next aim is to do some consolidation runs, and try to get up to running the full 5 Km before Christmas, when I will be forced to take a short break for medical reasons. Hopefully, next year I will feel confident enough to try a Park Run.
Once again, thanks for such a great supportive community.
