Iv been wondering what everyone’s reason for starting the C25K was?
Mine wasn’t anything to do with fitness, loosing weight, learning to run or anything physical but was to become mentally stronger!
I was at a point where mentally I wasn’t doing well, the options of more medication wasn’t really an option, other routes of self help was proving not to be working well so a gym prescription was something I asked for.
Following this planned 9 week app gave me something to focus on, challenge myself, to make myself go to the gym at least 3 times a week to run on the treadmill. At the beginning I added in swimming and extra gym work but as the runs got longer the rest days became important.
Some days I thought I couldn’t even get out of bed but that nagging voice in my mind told me I had to go.
Tomo is graduation day, week 9, run 3! These last 9 weeks I have found out I am stronger inside and out than I realised, I’m not a weak minded person as I thought, I can push through mental barriers when part of me is saying stop!
I would love to hear other ppl’s stories to what brought them here.
