A little quiz....๐Ÿ˜Ž

Just back from my run and feeling happy this morning I wondered....

WHAT DO YOU LIKE *BEST* ABOUT C25K

1. Waking up in the morning and remembering its a Run Day!

2. Being in your kit and heading out the door for some you time...

3. Actually running, the feeling of freedom and feeling at one with your surroundings..

4.The warm-down walk.

5.The feeling of satisfaction that your run is Done!

6. Telling everyone in earshot 'I ran today'..

7. ALL of the above ๐Ÿ˜†....

It was Swisstony saying a 'run day is a fun day ' that triggered the idea..

I think I know which answer will come out top...

Happy running everyone.๐Ÿ˜xxx

5 I think the most! Like SaskAlliecat I am guilty of 6 too. It's like when you've got a crush on someone and you keep mentioning it (mentionitis) - I have runtionitis.

Have trouble with 1 - this morning it was tough to get myself out there!

Great post! Number 3 for me!

Love being outside feeling the wind, rain or sun on my face......emersed in the environment. Stress, worries, distractions gone as I focus entirely on the physical experience. Just love it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Even though I like everything about the programme (and most of all, you forget something: the forum or is it number 6? ;-), my favourite is definitely 3 because whatever happens, whether it is tough or easy, I love being able to move my legs without feeling any restraint at all, which woud not have been possible ten years ago (talk about aging!!). To me, it is such a Wonder, I enjoy every second of it!

I would normally say 7, but I am currently training for a HM so the mileage has increased week to week, which means v.early starts as I run before work, so the alarm going off at 5am makes 1 hard to enjoy and the cold dark mornings make 2 a challenge also.

However, what I do know for sure is it is worth it, each and every time - good run or bad run.

Actually running, the feeling of freedom and feeling at one with your surroundings & The feeling of satisfaction that your run is Done! and the bling, the running bling: the bright silky lycra and the shoes and all the little bits and gadgets, in fact everything i would have steered clear of three months ago......sigh...addict here :(

Yes definitely no.7 !! I was up and out the door at 5.30 this morning and itโ€™s my day off but I knew if I had my run Iโ€™d enjoy my day off more!! Already had a slice of my freshly baked lemon cake!!

Also guilty of no.6 (my poor 13 yr old bore brunt of that this morning!! ) ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'd say 4 and 5, with 2 and 3 being close behind! When it feels good then definitely No 3 too. The only one I struggle with is No 1 so I can't put all of them!

3, 4, 5, 6 and Oldflossโ€™s 8. Sometimes like 1 and 2, but to be honest not always, so I canโ€™t say 7!

Yup - all. And there definitely needs to be a separate number for this forum - it makes all the rest possible. Although I run on my own at the moment - and enjoy that - it's great to know you're all out and about there too (and keen to chat about it all afterwards!) X
