I was really keen to get to the end of W6 so decided to go for it despite a sore throat (courtesy of young grandchildren AGAIN) and the beginnings of a cold. Managed to do it and was so happy and chuffed. Very slow as always but this doesn’t worry me. I was able to follow Michael’s suggestion to accelerate for the last minute too. 😲
The first 8 or so minutes were the hardest, and this is very similar to when I was regularly swimming, when the first 10 lengths were the tough ones. I only came to C25k because I suddenly became allergic to the pool water which was extremely upsetting at first but now seems a blessing in disguise.
I am very grateful to all those who’ve posted their experiences on this forum. There’s such a lot of wisdom and encouragement.
I plan to start W7 on my 65th birthday this week unless the germs overpower me and get a gait analysis done. How thrilling - and 6 weeks ago I hadn’t a clue what it was!
