Hi, this is my first post. Having done no running since I was at school (and even then reluctantly!) I challenged myself to do this programme in an effort to get fitter. It's definitely working - at the weekend I managed to climb all 284 steps of the Arc de Triomphe and still hold a conversation with my daughter when I got to the top. I would have been on my knees and completely out of breath before I embarked on C25k, so I'm quietly chuffed! Posts on this forum are amazingly helpful and motivating. Just wondering how I'll cope with a 20 minute run tomorrow but, as everyone says, the programme really works so I'm quietly confident!
