W3R1 done!

W3R1 done!

Last time I attempted c25k I got to week three and gave up because I could not stand running in the rain (glasses wearer) and falling over injuring myself. Now I have joined a gym, I enjoy the sessions on a tredmill.

This morning I got up early done some weights then ran W3R1 as a cardio element. It went well. I jogged (8kmh) through the running parts and brisk walked (5,4kmh). I felt a slight ache near the top of my left ankle, so I am just monitoring it closely so I dont injure myself.

This 3 minute run was a giant step as just a few months ago I couldn't even jog 10 seconds!

Next runs, Wednesday and Friday :)

w3r3 done along with weights. Kind of looking forward to next week, but a bit afraid of the 5 minute run sections.

However I do trust in the programme.
