Time to get back on track after almost 4 months off!!

So, I completed the couch to 5k 4 months ago now and have let things slip....to say the least! I did a few free runs after graduating but since then, I have completely abandoned running!!! I'm at the point where I'm going to start up again as I miss the amazing benefits I gained from running (mainly sleeping better and feeling more positive about myself), so I thought I'd drop by and say hi :-) This group really helped me when I started out so I'm hoping to gain inspiration from you all once more :-)

Well done for getting back to it......im sure it will be much easier for you to get through this time and your fitness will come back in no time ๐Ÿ˜€


Thank you! I hope you're right ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž


If you did it once, you can do it again - and again and again! It took a while to dawn on me that C25k isnโ€™t just for beginners but is a useful structure anytime you want to restart or maintain. Great that you came first to the forum...good luck Kerrisue

Well done.This is the second best decision of your life.๐Ÿค”

The first time you got some rewards,quality sleep and lifted mood.Pleased for you.

This canbe a life changing experience.๐Ÿค”

My top tip, re read all the FAQ Posts and members posts and replies, and find a gem that you take with you on your first run and a new one or a few , on all of your following runs.

Your are building a running body and a running brain.๐Ÿค”

As you complete each training run, share your experiences and things you have learned, because remember these are gems for Newbies and all abilities also.

The C25k programme and community, is a jewel in the crown , in my opinion , of the NHS One You /Everthing HealthUnlocked/HealthUnlocked, Leadership to Health Journey.๐ŸŒŸ

It is Amazing, but also amazing for me is how little is known if it.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™ˆ.

Mind blowing, world class, comprehensive gift for all.You name it in health and fitness and it has it all and more.

I am not amazed now, that it has the information and the gems to be life changing.

Go get the gems and share yours.

Enjoy your journey.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Thatโ€™s great and remember you have to bring that motivation.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Believe it.๐Ÿ‘

The C25K forum does and has no doubts.

Mentor IT said he never feared a run only enjoyed.๐ŸŒŸ

You will experience the reason also and enjoy.๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŸ
