I’m so pleased to have found this community. I work in a very sedentary job, am about to be 50 and am very overweight. I was drawn to C25K and when I started, at the end of April I couldn’t run for 30 seconds. I’ve had to repeat weeks but am proud and amazed to say I will be completing my second run of week three tomorrow. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was when I realised that I wouldn’t be running 5k in 9 weeks (naive I know now!!) but I can see now that it may be possible. Today is my rest day but I’ve been reading other comments on here to increase my confidence for tomorrow. Thank you to anyone who has replied to a post (I may have read it!) and thank you to anyone that takes the time to read this epic tale!
