W1R2 I did it again!!!! ๐ŸŽ‰

Hi all. Just done run2 of week one! I just canโ€™t believe Iโ€™m actually getting off my fat arse and wanting to do this..... and actually enjoying it! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

I am still scared of whats to come in the following weeks ahead .... will I ...can I actually get to the end ? Who know but Iโ€™m going to give it all Iโ€™ve got. I kinda feel proud of myself too ๐Ÿ˜Š I have never ever done any sort of exercise and made it part of my life, I guess itโ€™s never too late is it?

Hope everyone is having a great day, sun is shining here today and so am I! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Great job Shaz! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Slow and steady is all you need to do to get you to graduation. Get there safely and you can then lay plans for whatโ€™s to come. We can help you with that ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Yep, itโ€™s great to get off the sofa and doing something with that bod. Other than stuffing crisps into it ๐Ÿ™‚. I had an arse the size of Wales. Not now. I literally ran it off. You can too ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช

Thank you so much ๐Ÿ˜Š

It feels great to have down that first thing this morning instead of going for a McDonaldโ€™s bloody breakfast ๐Ÿฅž

I am following slimming world too. Not going to a class I think itโ€™s too much with doing This as well, so my partner is weighing with me on Thursday mornings. I started last week! He is a marathon runner and is supporting me all the way. Without any pressure. I want to loose 4 stone. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Itโ€™s one day ... step at a time isnโ€™t it ?

Thanks again for the message. Have a gorgeous day ๐Ÿ˜Š

I do WW. Been maintaining for nearly 8 years. I weigh in and stay to class. I love it! Itโ€™s a lovely group, and without a young lass there setting me off with C25k podcasts, Iโ€™d maybe still be a lard arse โ˜บ๏ธ She got me going with it. Iโ€™d never heard of it. I canโ€™t ruddy stop running now, and I started racing in my late fifties. It is such a Blast I canโ€™t tell you ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

Since then several other members have started running, and one lass is racing now so we take our medal to class ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ‘

I lost 65 lbs. good riddance ๐Ÿ˜. If your husband is a marathon runner erm donโ€™t run with him. Go at your own pace with the app ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ In the future when youโ€™re all graduated you can let him jog with you, your pace, not his. Just think, in future, you can marathon together ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Donโ€™t โ€œkindaโ€ feel proud. Feel very, very proud. Well done!

The weeks to come get harder. Thatโ€™s the point of them. If you stay determined and slow down when you need to you will continue to smash them.

Respect them, be a little anxious in anticipating them, but donโ€™t fear them - I made that mistake all the way through. You will be ready for each week when you reach it.

Enjoy the next run!

I've just started week 6 and I sound so like you when I started, not an exercise type of person let alone running....for fun ๐Ÿ˜‚ If I can do it (so far) then trust me so can you. My advice would be to leave your ego at home, so what if you don't complete a run, you will one day if you keep pushing on. I've failed miserably on a few runs but just tried again. Also go slooooowly like so slow u feel like you would be aswell to walk lol! Well done n keep going x

Edited to add, I started this program over a year ago but gave up as my weight loss (weight watchers) slowed right down and I could only put it down to this. I have since lost over 5 stone and it's actually boosting my losses now and I don't have alot to go now. Try not to be powered purely by weight loss as this is what stopped me continuing the c25k. Sorry for the long post lol!

Well great, you had a good day. That is wonderful. But remember you will have bad ones too. Come and share those here too. The key to this is to keep going, next step, next run, next day, next week. We are all in it together.
