Feeling pretty chuffed, as I'm actually enjoying my running now and beating my own PBs without forcing myself. Like 90% of C25K graduates, I'm hitting the 5K mark at 40 minutes for the moment, but I can see that I'm doing better and better!
What a great programme - it's given me confidence to carry on and made me realize that "slow and steady" is perfectly acceptable, especially as it protects us from injury.
I'm actually on the nhs 12 week fitness plan, so the next 3 weeks are already programmed and then I'll gradually integrate the bridge to 10k when I feel ready. (I haven't lost much weight, but I've lost inches where it counts!)
Not bad for a 60 year old grandma who never ran at school except short sprints on the hockey pitch, eh?
Thanks to all on the forum - it's been great reading all the posts and so encouraging to realize how many of us are out there all in the same boat and making the effort to get our bodies moving again!
