W1D1 - newbie

Hi all,

I just completed week 1 day 1 of the C25K. I was using MapMyRun, the last time I logged a run there was the 16th Jan 2017!! Oops! I fell out of love with running, but I want to get back to it - I really enjoy it when I’m out and feel so proud when I get back (damn endorphins!).

Anyway, I’m back on it, I look forward to reading your hints and tips and share some frustrations through this journey!

You run in the morning or in the day?

I’m going to be running in the evening, hopefully around 5:30 unless I get caught up in work. What about you?

Great job! I managed to do it as well! I was actually disappointed when I had to stop running and start walking, I felt like I was just getting in to my stride!

How was your run?!

It was good probablybetter than I thought it was going to be as my legs are a bit sore from my first run. The last run I did today was hard but I did it.

Hi from one newbie to another. I completed my 2nd run this evening. It's nice to know that we are not alone. I only joined this community on the 1st January, and it's already been an invaluable source of information, support and encouragement. Enjoy your journey.
